Agreed.

A valid concern. But the simple C framework will probably do the trick.

For output comparison and running commands, python is very usefull.
Consider:

  ./mydiff original modified >mypatch
  cp original original.patched
  cat mypatch | patch original.patched

  [compare original.patched to modified, they should be the same]
