On Red Hat 6.x, I need a tool that will tell me the difference between 2 configuration files

Is there a tool that will do that

Also , is there a tool that will approach this in a more complex manner, and will NOT report all lines after the first mismatch, but will only report lines in the first file that are not contained in the second file ?  For Instance:

a.conf

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
line 4
line 5
line  6

and b.conf

Line 1
Line 2
line 4
line 5
line  6

is there a tool that will report the difference as :

Line 3

instead of

Line 3
line 4
line 5
line  6

Thanks
