Hmm, I see. Well, honestly, then I would switch to a different
provider right away. We have rather good (and cheap) ones here,
and they give you a rather secure chroot() environment where you
can do more or less whatever you like, apart from being root of
course. You can telnet/ftp/ssh into your account, or if you are
not familiar with unix you can use web control panels, like Ensim
for instance. For for ridiculous prices that can provide you with
merchant facilities, SMS gateways, payment gateways, and every sort of
other things. And you can resell your services to your customers, too.
And they do not clutter your account with cookies, commercials and all
that garbage that lycos and friends impose on the stuff that they are

GNU diff (and friends) can be installed also on Windows, provided that
you are not forbidden to to so.

My apologies for my OT comments.
