Diff as the poor man's CVS

You can use diff to generate cool diffs of entire directory trees. I used this to compare the current running code on our internal site, with the backup archived code from a month ago. Shows all the changes we've done in the last month or so.

It's like poor man's CVS.

diff -urP --exclude=whatever /old-dir /new-dir
