Try "sdiff -so NUFILE GENERIC OLDFILE". That displays only the
differences side-by-side, and lets you choose one or both to include
in NUFILE, along with all the common lines, which you don't see
(with -s). ``?'' at the ``:'' prompt gives you a short help. I never
actually use any option except ``l'' to include the left version
(GENERIC, in this case), ``r'' to include the right, and ``e b q<CR>''
(or something) to include both, and straighten it out later with "vi."
