    description
      "yangdiff-pro compares the semantics and syntax between
        two revisions of the same YANG module.  The
        conceptual data model is compared, not the
        individual files.

        For example, unless statement order is significant,
        changing the order is not considered a change, and
        is not reported.  Reformatted test (whitespace changes)
        are also not reported.

        If a data type definition is changed in form,
        but not content, then a 'modify type' message
        will be generated, but no additional sub-fields
        will be reported.

        INPUT FILES

           To compare one module, use the 'old' and 'new'
           parameters to specify YANG module files,
           each with a filespec string ending with the '.yang'
           file extension.  The filespecs must represent
           different files.  If the 'old' parameter represents
           a directory, then this directory will be searched
           for the 'new' filename.

           To compare all the modules in a subtree, use the
           'old' and 'new' parameters to specify a directory
           to be searched for YANG modules to be processed.
           In this mode, each new module is compared to
           a corresponding file within the 'old' subtree.
           Also, dependency and include files
           will be kept separate, for each subtree.

           Unless the 'help' or 'version' parameters is entered,
           the 'old' and 'new' parameters must be present.

        SEARCH PATH

            When a module name is entered as input, or when a
            module or submodule name is specified in an import or include
            statement within the file, the following search algorithm
            is used to find the file:

            1) if the parameter for the file that generated the
               search request represents a subtree, search that
               subtree first.
            2) file is in the current directory
            3) YANG_MODPATH environment var (or set by modpath parameter)
            4) $HOME/modules directory
            5) $YANG_HOME/modules directory
            6) $YANG_INSTALL/modules directory OR
               default install module location, '/usr/share/yang/modules'

            By default, the entire directory tree for all locations
            (except step 1) will be searched, not just the specified
            directory.  The 'subdirs' parameter can be used to
            prevent sub-directories from being searched.

            Any directory name beginning with a dot character '.'
            will be skipped.  Also, any directory named 'CVS' will
            be skipped in directory searches.

        OUTPUT MODES

            By default, any comparison output will be sent to STDOUT.

            The 'output' parameter can be used to specify the
            full filespec of the output file,  or a
            complete directory specification to be combined
            with the default filename (yangdiff-pro.log).

        ERROR LOGGING

            By default, warnings and errors are sent to STDOUT.

            A log file can be specified instead with the 'log' parameter.
            Existing log files can be reused with the 'logappend'
            parameter, otherwise log files are overwritten.

            The logging level can be controlled with the 'log-level'
            parameter.  The default log level is 'info'.  The
            log-levels are additive:

               off:    suppress all errors (not recommended!)
                       A program return code of '1' indicates some error.
               error:  print errors
               warn:   print warnings
               info:   print generally interesting trace info
               debug:  print general debugging trace info
               debug2: print verbose debugging trace info

               Allowed values are 'terse', 'normal', and 'revision'.

               The basic format is:

                 [add/delete/modify] field-name [field-value]

              The 'terse' option will include the names
              of the top-level fields that are different.

                 A foo  -->  Added foo in new revision
                 D foo  -->  Deleted foo in new revision
                 M foo  -->  Modified foo in new revision (value too long)
                 M foo from '0' to '1'  -->  Modified foo in new revision

             The 'normal' option will also include any changes
             for any nested fields or objects.  This is the default
             option.

             The 'revision' option will generate the differences report
             in YANG revision-stmt format.  For example:

              revision <todays-date> {
                description
                  \"
