If your system has cron facility add a line to your crontab:

30 5 1 * * diff file1 file2 > results

This means run diff on given fies at 5:30 AM on 1st of each month and place output into file results

make sure file1, file2, and results include full path/file names, as a process executed by a cron will have crontab user's home directory as current directory.
