svn help diff

will give you the three modes of using the diff command

If you use diff this way, you can compare two revisions:
svn diff -r36335:38207

That compares revision 36335 to revision 38207 of one file.

To compare two files, use the 3rd usage line and pass the URLs
to the two files

svn diff

will diff two committed files.
