An example of basic shell commands, done on GNU Linux bash, but it's
not really different to FreeBSD and/or another shell ;).

[rocketmouse at archlinux tmp]$ echo "1234" > file_a.txt; echo "1234" >> file_a.txt
[rocketmouse at archlinux tmp]$ echo "1234" > file_b.txt; echo "5678" >> file_b.txt
[rocketmouse at archlinux tmp]$ cat file_a.txt
[rocketmouse at archlinux tmp]$ cat file_b.txt
[rocketmouse at archlinux tmp]$ diff file_a.txt file_b.txt
< 1234
