That means zdiff exited with status 2, which is the right thing for it
to do if it encounters an error.  status 1 means a difference was found.

Thanks for looking into this.

First, what does the zdiff script look like?  That is, what is the
output of the command "diff -c zdiff.in zdiff"?

Second, assuming the first line of 'zdiff' reads "#!/bin/ksh", what
is the output of the command "/bin/ksh -x zdiff -c gzip.doc.gz gzip.doc.gz"?

Third, and this is a shot in the dark, is the bug fixed if you
replace "((gzip" with "( (gzip" in zdiff?  That is, put a space
between the two opening parentheses.
