You have sent your message to gnu-misc-discuss, a mailing list for
discussion of the GNU Project, free software, the GNU Manifesto and
other related topics. But this mailing list is not the right forum
for your message asking for technical help with diff on cygwin.
Your message would be appropriate for either firstname.lastname@example.org
where 'diff' issues are discussed or, since you are using Cygwin, the
Cygwin mailing lists at http://cygwin.com/lists.html would perhaps be
the best for your question.
Please repost your question to one of those mailing lists. That will
get you to the right place to get help.
