Re: "same inode" problems with cygwin svn client

I believe the following project has diff and diff3 which would work.
To make them execute, one will need packages: diffutils, gettext, and
libiconv. Download the <package>-<version>-bin.zip from SF, and unzip
them with directories into c:\gnuwin32, for instance. Then, append
c:\gnuwin32\bin to PATH. Voila!

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnuwin32/
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gnuwin32/diffutils-2.8.1-bin.zip?download
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gnuwin32/gettext-0.10.40-bin.zip?download
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gnuwin32/libiconv-1.7-bin.zip?download

HTH.
