Hi guys,

Thanks for all those answers. I however thought that this would be a
fairly common problem and there might be a standard solution. Keeping
your suggestions in mind I did

cvs diff -wlcbBC20   -r rev1 -r  rev2 my_file.c  | perl -0777 -pe 's{/
\*.*?\*/}{}gs' | diffstat >> FileToHoldInfo.txt

idea is to get enough context lines and then eliminate the comments
from the diff output and finally use diffstat to gather stats. Do you
think this is the correct way ??
