You enouraged me to look a bit further and sure enough. I run emacs FS 
and so never think of anything under except a few old terminals. But I 
now see that there is an ediff a window under emacs. Here the p and 
nxxt commands do work, and the movement in one file is synced with 
that of the other. So my appended question was answered as well. Thank
