The DIFFOBJ() function is used to compare two objects which have the same property names. It returns an object containing only the properties that are different. The <object-ref1> is a reference to the first object to be compared and the <object-ref2> is a reference to the second object. The properites in the returned object will have the same values as <object-ref2>.
The DIFFOBJ() function is particularly useful when combined with the SCATTER command, where current data values and old buffer values have each been saved to an object.
