     COMPAR is a part of SOUPR (see SOUPR.DOC).

     The input to COMPAR consists of two ASCII files known as the base
file and the user file. COMPAR will compare the two files and create a
correction file. The correction file details how the user file differs
from the base file.

The command format is:

/EXIT           Exit to monitor (same as ^Z)
/HELP           Type this text
/LOG            Log file names (default)
/MATCH:n        A dissimilarity does not end until n lines match. The
                default is 3.
/NAME:foo       Each patch is labeled with the sixbit name foo. When
                correction files are merged, this label can be used to
                identify the origin of the patch. Labels can also be
                used as conditionals.
/NAME:"string"  Each patch is labeled with the ASCII string. Only the
                first word is significant for conditionals.
/NUMBER         In addition to labeling the edits, number them as well.
                For example, /NAME:FOO/NUMBER will label the edits as
                FOO1, FOO2, FOO3, etc.
/NOLOG          Don't log file names
