diffoscope 177 Compare files, archives, and directories in depth

Diffoscope tries to get to the bottom of what makes files or directories different. It recursively unpacks archives of many kinds and transforms various binary formats into more human readable forms to compare them. It can compare two tarballs, ISO images, or PDFs just as easily.

Diffoscope has many optional dependencies; diffoscope --list-missing-tools guix will display optional packages to install.
