My old install of cygwin included sdiff, a handy difference utility.  However, the newer install of cygwin moved sdiff somewhere and I haven't found it.  By default, sdiff was installed with cygwin and it no longer is installed by default.  How can I install cygwin's sdiff on a Windows machine?

Thanks

I have seen this and have not been able to find it either.  So I copied the one from older install and used that instead :)

I found the bloody thing!  It was in utils/diffutils.  It is so nice to have sdiff again!
