Quick help on diff command in script format.

Hello,

I have to compare close to 50 directories, and the files inside. I have tried the "vi" approach in "for loop" concept and that is talking too long.

Does anyone one has better idea or suggestion to check this out.

I have used this in past to check the file.
===============================
for X in $(cat abc.list)
do
vi ${X}/ora.conf
done
========================

Thanks in advance and appreciate your help.

Thanks....
