Please see the file doc/diff.texi (or doc/diff.info) for documentation
that can be printed with TeX, or read with the `info' program or with

If you have a problem with internationalization, you might be able to
work around it as described in ABOUT-NLS by invoking `./configure
--disable-nls'. Many of the problems arise from dynamic linking
issues on non-GNU platforms (e.g. with the iconv library). Such
problems tend to be shared by other GNU applications on these
platforms, and can usually be fixed by carefully tweaking your non-GNU
installation. If you have an older version of libiconv, please
upgrade to the latest one; see <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/libiconv/>. If
the problem seems isolated to diffutils, though, please report a bug.
This program requires a Standard C compiler (C89 or later). If you

If you make changes to the source code, you may need appropriate
versions of GNU build tools to regenerate the intermediate files. The
following versions were used to generate the intermediate files in
