in reply to Re^2: diff command
in thread diff command

I do not understand what this means. 0a1,4 means

"a" denotes an addition. "d" denotes a deletion. The numbers on the left form a range of line numbers in file1. The numbers on the right form a range of line numbers in file2.

and how to make the output files identical

Some options:

cp file1 file2
cp file2 file1
truncate -s 0 file1 file2
