Actually, I was hoping for a more "portable"
application that does not require installation.

Actually, it would be useful if the RunRev engine
could provide a command similar to diff for
binary files.

I have tested JDIFF and JPTCH with different
kind of files and it works flawless, but I know
that I should provide digests too:  SHA-1 or MD5
or CRC-32 or all of them are necessary to verify
the integrity of the files recreated.
