I know there is a tool in UNIX that allows you to compare two files and tells you the differenct between the two.  Is there a tool that would do the same thing but to two folders containing files with the same name?
ie.  folder1 contains file1, file2, file3
     folder2 contains file1, file2, file3
%<getdifferences> folder1 folder2
results
file1 -- no difference
file2 -- 1 blah blah
         25 blah blah blah
file3 -- 4 aksjdksd
         5 alskdjfskdjf
         6 kasjdfkd
etc...
