NAME

cdbdiff - program to operate cookie (fortune) database

SYNOPSIS

cdbdiff [options] <database1> <database2> <resultfile>

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the cdbdiff command.
 
This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has some plaintext documentation, see below.
cdbdiff is a program that compares two cookie databases and builds a list of those cookies that are only present in second, but not in the first of them. The input files are not modified in any way.

OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below. For a complete description, see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/cookietool directory
[nothing]
Shows summary of options.
-c

-d[0-3]
how fussy about word delimiters? (default: 2)
-f[0-3]
input file format - -f3: cookies are separated by '%%' lines; -f2: cookies are separated by '%' lines (DEFAULT); -f1: each line is a cookie; -f0: each word is a cookie.
-a
