I have a requirement to compare the file contents in two different directories..

Dir One

Dir two

before comparing the files for differences, I would like to delete few lines in these files,
for example, these files have CVS repository information on the top

 Source:         $Source: /home/test/blah$
 Module           $abc$

can some one provide a script to delete these lines based on a given pattern in all the files in a directory.

Once those lines are deleted, I will use a dircmp command to perform the diff on the directories..
