How to use tkdiff to compare two gzip files in gui mode?


If your shell supports it, you can use process substitution...

tkdiff <(gzip -dc file1.gz) <(gzip -dc file2.gz)

Now tkdiff will think the files are called something like /dev/fd/4 and /dev/fd/5 but the contents of those two files will be the uncompressed files, and so will operate normally.
