You don't have to be a serious programmer to use source control. It is very, very useful if you are maintaining a long-term project.

Nice that I can get diffutils without having to learn how to use MingW32 or svn. I've never used either and I don't think it's worthwhile for me to learn them. I don't really plan to become a serious programmer.
You shouldn't learn svn, but you should learn something simpler like Mercurial (hg) or Bazaar (bzr). Neither of those require any server type setup and source control is essential for long-term maintenance on any project. (I know it may be hard to imagine if you haven't tried, but just trust me. You'll be happier for it.)

Yeah, I'm just now getting around to continuing what I was doing here..
Anyway, I have now installed the windows version of diffutils, and I have the same questions I had before. There still doesn't seem to be any executible.
(It could really use some better documentation. All the documentation seems to assume you can get the command prompt to recognise what 'diff' means)

Binaries are in %programfiles%\GnuWin32\bin You might need to add that to path.

How do you do that?

EDIT: nevermind, I did a google search and found how to change the path.
