Thanks Dave ! - I just had a look at it in Xemacs 21 - it's the business.
The last version I used would have been in XE 18 or so. For you poor vim
savages, ediff displays differences colored and provides a control panel
from where you can move back and forward between differences, and merge a
particular difference from one file or the other. The files being compared
can be side by side or one on top of the other. This is definitely a nice toy.
