colordiff and vim

Here mention a perl script package on Debian, colordiff. For highlighting output of diff just only pipe the output of diff to colordiff. For example, $ diff -rq /etc /var | colordiff | less -R or other similar commands as $svk diff | colordiff | less -R to get the highlighted. Otherwise we can use vim to got the same effect if syntax on has set in .vimrc. For example, $diff -rq /etc /var | vim -. Just only some difference between them. :p
