newbie question abou patches

I have a module "myModule" under CVS control.
After a few changes I tagged the module as rel-1-1.
Then I exported :
cvs export -r rel-1-1 "myModule" 
and gave it to a client.

Somewhere I read that it is a good practice to create
a branch for patches on that release. So, I created
the rel-1-1-patches branch.

I have made some changes on a few files of the branch.
Now I want to generate a patch for the files I

Is there a way to generate the patches for those

Right now, what I do is that I export the

cvs export -r rel-1-1-pathces "myModule"

and overwrite all files of my client. I suppose this
is the naive way. 

Could anyone tell me how to generate (efficiently) the
necessary pathches for the changed files? As you can
see, I'm a newbie at this.

Thanx a lot,
Elbert Andrés Messa D.
