It can also be applied to a pair of files to automatise the generation of difference file in postscript or pdf format. .SH "OPTIONS" .IX Header "OPTIONS" .IP "\fB\-\-rcs\fR, \fB\-\-svn\fR, \fB\-\-cvs\fR, or \fB\-\-git\fR" 4 .IX Item "--rcs, --svn, --cvs, or --git" Set the version system. If no version system is specified, latexdiff-vc will venture a guess. .Sp latexdiff-cvs and latexdiff-rcs are variants of latexdiff-vc which default to the respective versioning system. However, this default can still be overridden using the options above. .IP "\fB\-r\fR, \fB\-r\fR \fIrev\fR or \fB\-\-revision\fR, \fB\-\-revision=\fR\fIrev\fR" 4 .IX Item "-r, -r rev or --revision, --revision=rev" Choose revision (under \s-1RCS\s0, \s-1CVS\s0, \s-1SVN\s0 or \s-1GIT\s0). One or two \fB\-r\fR options can be specified, and they result in different behaviour: .RS 4 .IP "\fBlatexdiff-vc\fR \-r \fIfile.tex\fR ..." 4 .IX Item "latexdiff-vc -r file.tex ..." compares \fIfile.tex\fR with the most recent version checked into \s-1RCS\s0. .IP "\fBlatexdiff-vc\fR \-r \fIrev1\fR \fIfile.tex\fR ..." 4 .IX Item "latexdiff-vc -r rev1 file.tex ..." compares \fIfile.tex\fR with revision \fIrev1\fR. .IP "\fBlatexdiff-vc\fR \-r \fIrev1\fR \-r \fIrev2\fR \fIfile.tex\fR ..." 4 .IX Item "latexdiff-vc -r rev1 -r rev2 file.tex ..." compares revisions \fIrev1\fR and \fIrev2\fR of \fIfile.tex\fR. .Sp Multiple files can be specified for all of the above options. All files must have the extension \f(CW\*(C`.tex\*(C'\fR, though. .IP "\fBlatexdiff-vc\fR \fIold.tex\fR \fInew.tex\fR" 4 .IX Item "latexdiff-vc old.tex new.tex" compares two files. .RE .RS 4 .Sp The name of the difference file is generated automatically and reported to stdout. .RE .IP "\fB\-d\fR or \fB\-\-dir\fR \fB\-d\fR \fIpath\fR or \fB\-\-dir=\fR\fIpath\fR" 4 .IX Item "-d or --dir -d path or --dir=path" Rather than appending the string \f(CW\*(C`diff\*(C'\fR and optionally the version numbers given to the output-file, this will prepend a directory name \f(CW\*(C`diff\*(C'\fR to the original filename, creating the directory and subdirectories should they not exist already. This is particularly useful in order to clone a complete directory hierarchy. Optionally, a pathname \fIpath\fR can be specified, which is prepended instead of \f(CW\*(C`diff\*(C'\fR. .IP "\fB\-\-fast\fR or \fB\-\-so\fR" 4 .IX Item "--fast or --so" Use \f(CW\*(C`latexdiff\-fast\*(C'\fR or \f(CW\*(C`latexdiff\-so\*(C'\fR, respectively (instead of \f(CW\*(C`latexdiff\*(C'\fR). .IP "\fB\-\-ps\fR or \fB\-\-postscript\fR" 4 .IX Item "--ps or --postscript" Generate postscript output from difference file. This will run the sequence \f(CW\*(C`latex; latex; dvips\*(C'\fR on the difference file (do not use this option in the rare cases, where three \f(CW\*(C`latex\*(C'\fR commands are required if you care about correct referencing). If the difference file contains a \f(CW\*(C`\ebibliography\*(C'\fR tag, run the sequence \f(CW\*(C`latex; bibtex; latex; latex; dvips\*(C'\fR. .IP "\fB\-\-pdf\fR" 4 .IX Item "--pdf" Generate pdf output from difference file using \f(CW\*(C`pdflatex\*(C'\fR. This will run the sequence \f(CW\*(C`pdflatex; pdflatex\*(C'\fR on the difference file, or \&\f(CW\*(C`pdflatex; bibtex; pdflatex; pdflatex\*(C'\fR for files requiring bibtex. .IP "\fB\-\-force\fR" 4 .IX Item "--force" Overwrite existing diff files without asking for confirmation. Default behaviour is to ask for confirmation before overwriting an existing difference file. .IP "\fB\-\-help\fR or \fB\-h\fR" 4 .IX Item "--help or -h" Show help text .IP "\fB\-\-version\fR" 4 .IX Item "--version" Show version number .PP All other options are passed on to \f(CW\*(C`latexdiff\*(C'\fR. .SH "SEE ALSO" .IX Header "SEE ALSO" latexdiff .SH "PORTABILITY" .IX Header "PORTABILITY" \&\fIlatexdiff-vc\fR uses external commands and is therefore limited to Unix-like systems. It also requires the \s-1RCS\s0 version control system and latex to be installed on the system. Modules from Perl 5.8 or higher are required. .SH "BUG REPORTING" .IX Header "BUG REPORTING" .Vb 6 \& Please submit bug reports through \&the latexdiff project page I or send \&to I.
