Have a look at FreeVCS - it has a good diff-style utility. http://www.freevcs,org

what kind of comparing are you needing? I do not know the  'diff'  program.  You could just run through both files and see if any bytes are not the same, however if you want to compare the (I guess text) file data to find chunks that  may have been removed, it can get kind of complicated
