just for completeness, there is a very nice utility in Developer/ 
Applications/Utilities called "FileMerge". It is much nicer than diff  
and also allows you to create a resulting file by specifying which  
parts you want from which file. It is too intuitive and easy to use  
for Emacs users but I though I'll mention it anyway ;).
