   diffint: differences between integers

   diffint(input: in, output: out);

   input: a set of integers, one per line.
       Lines that begin with "*" are ignored.

   output: the difference between each integer and the previous one.


   Lines that begin with an asterisk ('*') are first copied to the
   output.  then the difference between each integer in input and the
   previous one is given to the output.

technical notes

   The program originally acted as if the integer before the first one
   is zero, but this creates artifacts.  The initial data point is now
   dropped.  However, data often comes separate into chunks.  This is
   marked by the comments.  So the program resets everytime there is a
   comment line.

   The name was changed to diffint (from difint) because that's
   closer to the Unix diff command.
