I could write something in perl, but don't know if anything exists or not.

Subject: Re: How can I extract differences between 2 folders ?

First I am sorry writing folders instead of files.
as far as I see diff command compares differences line by line between 2 
files

That's to say,
File a
orange
blue
yellow

File b
yellow
blue
orange

diff --suppress-common-lines -w -y a b
orange                                                        <
blue                                                          <
                                                              > blue
                                                              > orange


as above you see,  A and B files contains the same strings but their's lines 
are different
I wish diff or another command not to display same values which are in 
different lines.
