       diffpdf - compare two PDF files textually or visually


       diffpdf [file1] [file2]


       This manual page very briefly documents the diffpdf command.

       DiffPDF is a GUI application used to compare two PDF files.
       By  default  the  comparison  is of the text on each pair of pages, but
       comparing the  visual  appearance  of  pages  is  also  supported  (for
       example,  if a diagram is changed or if a paragraph is reformatted). It
       is also possible to  compare  particular  pages  or  page  ranges.  For
       example,  if  there are two versions of a PDF file, one with pages 1-12
       and the other with pages 1-13 because of  an  extra  page  having  been
       added  as  page  4, they can be compared by specifying two page ranges,
       1-12 for the first and 1-3, 5-13 for the second. This will make DiffPDF
       compare  pages in the pairs (1, 1), (2, 2), (3, 3), (4, 5), (5, 6), and
       so on, to (12, 13).
