[NEWBIE] making a proper diff

From: Mathew Earle Reuther (graymere@zipcon.net)

Ok, I'm trying to compare all the source files in my original basecode to
the sourcefiles from the latest bpl with dg/olc/etc that Fungi upkeeps.  I
need to know WHAT exactly is different between them, because I think it
may hold they key to all my problems.

But I get a 3 MEG diff file when I do this:

diff -BNprus circle30bpl22/src basecode/src > diff.patch

Uh.  What the heck?!  I mean, the lines with a ton of ***** on them at the
beginning of the files get removed and then added back.  Please, that's
ridiculous.  What in the heck am I doing wrong?!
