2bsd-diff

This is the original diff program from 2.11BSD. It works better with very large files on systems with datasize limits.

Default FreeBSD limits datasize to 524288 kbytes. This means that GNU diff processes that require more than this much ram will fail. The 2.11BSD diff did not load the files in core and could operate on considerably less ram.
