OS command help!!!
I have a unix script to check the Oralc alert log every 10 minutes. The concept is to use "diff" command to get the difference between the current alert log and the one that copied from 10 minutes ago. By doing this, I only need to review a small portion of the alert log and will never miss any important message inside the alert log.
However, how do you do "diff" on NT? Is there a compatible command of "diff" on NT?
plus a bunch of other places found via Google search "diff in MS-DOS"

Just a thought:
The OEM event "Alert" monitors new errors being written to the alert log. You could save yourself some effort by using this to monitor all your instances in a central and simple manner. Better still, it is standard for all operating systems so you don't have to worry about supporting multiple scripts.
