Thank you for your reply.
So what you are saying is that: If -I is used, and a diff is found on a line, all lines after, and until another matching one is found, are treated as one diffed chunk, thus ignoring the -I flag?
Could you please give me an example of how to use the tool. Im reposting my example bellow. I would like to get a diff report on row2 and nothing else
And then the following comand to compare the files but exclude lines 3 and 5
$ diff -I 'row3' -I 'row5' file1 file2
< row2 diffX
< row3 diffY
> row2 diffXX
> row3 diffYY
