bbdiff is simply a Perl script which communicates with BBEdit via AppleScript. To install it, download the source file, or copy and paste it into a new text document (with Unix-style line endings). Move it to a location in your PATH, such as /usr/local/bin/. Set the permissions on the bbdiff file such that the executable bits are turned on. For example:
chmod 755 bbdiff
