Hi.  The info manual of Diffutils, in the Overview node, talks about the
'M-x compare-windows' Emacs command.  For more information it refers to
the Emacs manual node 'Other Window'.  However, the aforementioned
command is not described in that manual node.  It is instead described
in '(emacs) Comparing Files'.

I am sorry for not providing a patch.

Regards
