|--rcs, --svn, --cvs, --git or --hg||
Set the version system.
If no version system is specified, latexdiff-vc will venture a guess.
latexdiff-cvs, latexdiff-rcs etc are variants of latexdiff-vc which default to the respective versioning system. However, this default can still be overridden using the options above.
|-r, -r rev or --revision, --revision=rev||
Choose revision (under RCS, CVS, SVN, GIT or HG). One or two -r options can be
specified, and they result in different behaviour:
The name of the difference file is generated automatically and reported to stdout.
|-d or --dir -d path or --dir=path||Rather than appending the string diff and optionally the version numbers given to the output-file, this will prepend a directory name diff 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 path can be specified, which is prepended instead of diff.|
If combined with --git, --svn or --hg option or the corresponding modes, check out the revisions to compare in a separate temporary directory, and then pass on option --flatten to latexdiff. The directory in which latexdiff-vc is invoked defines the subtree which will be checked out.
Note that if additional files are needed which are not included in the flatten procedure (package files, included graphics), they need to be accessible in the current directory. If you use bibtex, it is recommended to include the .bbl file in the version management.
The generic usage of this function is : latexdiff-vc --flatten -r rev1 [-r rev2] master.tex where master.tex is the project file containing the highest level of includes etc.
With --flatten=keep-intermediate, the intermediate revision snapshots are kept in the current directory (Default is to store them in a temporary directory and delete them after generating the diff file.)
|--fast or --so||Use latexdiff-fast or latexdiff-so, respectively (instead of latexdiff).|
|--ps or --postscript||Generate postscript output from difference file. This will run the sequence latex; latex; dvips on the difference file (do not use this option in the rare cases, where three latex commands are required if you care about correct referencing). If the difference file contains a \bibliography tag, run the sequence latex; bibtex; latex; latex; dvips.|
|Generate pdf output from difference file using pdflatex. This will run the sequence pdflatex; pdflatex on the difference file, or pdflatex; bibtex; pdflatex; pdflatex for files requiring bibtex.|
|--only-changes||Post-process the output such that only pages with changes on them are displayed. This requires the use of subtype ZLABEL in latexdiff, which will be set automatically, but any manually set -s option will be overruled (also requires zref package to be installsed). (note that this option must be combined with --ps or --pdf to make sense)|
|--force||Overwrite existing diff files without asking for confirmation. Default behaviour is to ask for confirmation before overwriting an existing difference file.|
|--help or -h||Show help text|
|--version||Show version number|
latexdiff-vc uses external commands and is therefore limited to Unix-like systems. It also requires the a version control system and latex to be installed on the system to make use of all features. Modules from Perl 5.8 or higher are required.
Please submit bug reports using the issue tracker of the github repository page https://github.com/ftilmann/latexdiff.git, or send them to tilmann AT gfz-potsdam.de. Include the version number of latexdiff-vc (option --version).
