I located a version of diff that can be run under Windows to prepare patches for the enhancements that I implemented for tiffdump and tiffset. However, the changes that I made include a lot of white space changes due to greater indentation of pre-existing blocks of code within new if statement blocks. Do you want to see all of these white space changes in the diff output, or should I tell diff to ignore whitespace or indentation differences?

I recommend using the diff option '-u'. The most important concern is how easy it is is to automatically apply the patch. White space is cheap. The person who applies the patch can re-indent the code (after the patch is applied) as they see fit. The -u option selects a "unified context" diff.
