Friendly FYI -- a proper diff file is created by the command-line  
"diff" function.  For posting patches to Trac, you should start with  
WordPress "trunk".  Basically what I do is this:

1) Save a copy of the file you're going to change -- maybe just append  
"-orig" to the end of it.

2) Make your changes to the file.

3) Use diff to compare the modified file to the "-orig" copy.  I pipe  
it to my text editor and save it from there.  Something like this:

diff ./original_file.php ./new_file.php | bbedit

That's off the top of my head, but pretty close.  Save the file with  
the .diff extension.

The reason this is the way to do it is that the Powers-What-Is can  
apply that patch with the "patch" command, rather than manually  
inserting your new code.

Actually, now that I'm using SVN, I use the SVN "diff" command  
instead.  It nicer because if I've changed more than one file, it can  
handle that better. :)
