Is that one command or several? Are you entering it at the command prompt?

Please use [code][/code] tags and place each command on its own line.

Maybe if you would also explain what you are attempting to do we may be of more help?

It looks like you're trying to run a diff, as well as the output of the diff, as a command. Where did you get these commands? It sounds like somebody just posted their diff results and you're trying to run the output as if it's a command.
