I have an apparently common problem with 'diff', that is the program
cannot be found. I know that there are a lot of posts about this
subject in the archives, I have read them all but unfortunately, I
have not been clever enough to find out what I should do to fix it on
I would be really grateful if one of you could take time to explain me
what I should do.
Here are what I have been able to gather about that problem:
I have XEmacs version 21.4.5 on PC Windows 2000, I have downloaded as
well the package ediff-1.46 but I haven't been able to find any
diff.exe nor ediff.exe within it. Is that correct?
When I try to use diff or ediff within XEmacs, I end up with the
message: "No such file or directory, diff".
The variables ediff-diff-program and ediff-diff3-program are
respectively set to diff and diff3.
My path variable contains the folders C:\[...]\xemacs-packages\etc and
C:\[...]\xemacs-packages\lisp which contain both an ediff folder.
I would really like to use the diff tool with XEmacs because it looks
very powerful but I really need your help!
Thanks a lot for your time and help.
