    Shell compare multiple files against one base file (diff?)

    Hi! I'm trying to compare one base config file to 500 other config files and wanted some help. Are there any command line tools that are built to solve this specific problem or perl/python? I don't think diff was built for this. I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!
