How can I compare two from two different systems?
We are using Tru64 Unix

diff -u oldfile newfile

will output a list of differences between the two files <I>oldfile</I> and <I>newfile</I>. If your system has sdiff (or the --side-by-side option to diff) that may also be useful.

In Tru64 Compaq Unix there is no -u
but after reading your mail I did find out how to compare
