README

1README for GNU DIFF
2
3This directory contains the GNU diff, diff3, sdiff, and cmp utilities.
4Their features are a superset of the Unix features and they are
5significantly faster.
6
7Please see the file COPYING for copying conditions.
8
9Please see the file doc/version.texi for version information.
10
11Please see the file doc/diff.texi (or doc/diff.info) for documentation
12that can be printed with TeX, or read with the `info' program or with
13Emacs's `M-x info'.  Brief man pages are in man/*, but they are no
14substitute for the documentation.
15
16Please see the file ABOUT-NLS for notes about translations.
17
18Please see the file INSTALL for generic compilation and installation
19instructions.  Briefly, you can run "./configure; make install".  The
20command "./configure --help" lists the supported --enable and --with
21options.
22
23If you have a problem with internationalization, you might be able to
24work around it as described in ABOUT-NLS by invoking `./configure
25--disable-nls'.  Many of the problems arise from dynamic linking
26issues on non-GNU platforms (e.g. with the iconv library).  Such
27problems tend to be shared by other GNU applications on these
28platforms, and can usually be fixed by carefully tweaking your non-GNU
29installation.  If you have an older version of libiconv, please
30upgrade to the latest one; see <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libiconv/>.  If
31the problem seems isolated to diffutils, though, please report a bug.
32
33This program requires a Standard C compiler (C89 or later).  If you
34have a nonstandard compiler, please install GCC first.
35
36If you make changes to the source code, you may need appropriate
37versions of GNU build tools to regenerate the intermediate files.  The
38following versions were used to generate the intermediate files in
39this distribution:
40
41* Autoconf 2.59   <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-2.59.tar.gz>
42* Automake 1.8.3  <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/automake/automake-1.8.3.tar.gz>
43* gettext 0.14.1  <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gettext/gettext-0.14.1.tar.gz>
44* help2man 1.33   <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/help2man/help2man-1.33.1.tar.gz>
45* Texinfo 4.7     <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/texinfo/texinfo-4.7.tar.gz>
46
47Please report bugs to <bug-gnu-utils@gnu.org>.
