 Options to `sdiff'
    Below is a summary of all of the options that GNU `sdiff' accepts.
 Each option has two equivalent names, one of which is a single letter
 preceded by `-', and the other of which is a long name preceded by
 `--'.  Multiple single letter options (unless they take an argument)
 can be combined into a single command line argument.  Long named
 options can be abbreviated to any unique prefix of their name.
