       latexrevise - selectively remove markup and text from latexdiff output


       latexrevise [ OPTIONS ] [ diff.tex ] > revised.tex


       latexrevise reads a file "diff.tex" (output of latexdiff), and remove
       the markup commands.  If no filename is given the input is read from
       standard input. The command can be used in ACCEPT, DECLINE, or SIMPLIFY
       mode, or can be used to remove user-defined latex commands from the
       input (see -c, -e, -m, and -n below).  In ACCEPT mode, all appended
       text fragments  (or preamble lines) are kept, and all discarded text
       fragments (or preamble lines) are deleted.  In DECLINE mode, all
       discarded text fragments are kept, and all appended text fragments are
       deleted.  If you wish to keep some changes, edit the diff.tex file in
       advance, and manually remove those tokens  which would otherwise be
       deleted.  Note that latexrevise only pays attention to the
       "\DIFaddbegin", "\DIFaddend", "\DIFdelbegin", and "\DIFdelend" tokens
       and corresponding FL varieties.  All "\DIFadd" and "\DIFdel" commands
       (but not their contents) are simply deleted.   The commands added by
       latexdiff to the preamble are also removed.  In SIMPLIFY mode,
       "\DIFaddbegin, \DIFaddend, \DIFdelbegin, \DIFdelend" tokens and their
       corresponding "FL" varieties are kept but all other markup (e.g.
       "DIFadd" and <\DIFdel>) is removed.  The result will not in general be
       valid latex-code but it will be easier to read and edit in preparation
       for a subsequent run in ACCEPT or DECLINE mode.  In SIMPLIFY mode the
       preamble is left unmodified.


       -a or --accept
           Run in ACCEPT mode (delete all blocks marked by "\DIFdelbegin" and

       -d or --decline
           Run in DECLINE mode (delete all blocks marked by "\DIFaddbegin" and

       -s or --simplify
           Run in SIMPLIFY mode (Keep all "\DIFaddbegin", "\DIFaddend",
           "\DIFdelbegin", "\DIFdelend" tokens, but remove all other latexdiff
           markup from body).

       Note that the three mode options are mutually exclusive.  If no mode
       option is given, latexrevise simply removes user annotations and markup
       according to the following four options.

       -c cmd or --comment=cmd
           Remove "\cmd{...}" sequences.  "cmd" is supposed to mark some
           explicit anotations which should be removed from the file before

       -e envir or --comment-environment=envir
           Remove explicit annotation environments from the text, i.e. remove



       -m cmd or --markup=cmd
           Remove the markup command "\cmd" but leave its argument, i.e.  turn
           "\cmd{abc}" into "abc".

       -n envir or --markup-environment=envir
           Similarly, remove "\begin{envir}" and "\end{envir}" commands but
           leave content of the environment in the text.

       -V or --verbose
           Verbose output

       -q or --no-warnings
           Do not warn users about "\DIDadd{..}" or "\DIFdel{..}" statements
           which should have been removed already.


       The current version is a beta version which has not yet been
       extensively tested, but worked fine locally.  Please send bug reports
       to  Include the serial number of latexrevise
       (from comments at the top of the source).  If you come across latexdiff
       output which is not processed correctly by latexrevise please include
       the problem file as well as the old and new files on which it is based,
       ideally edited to only contain the offending passage as long as that
       still reproduces the problem.

       latexrevise gets confused by commented "\begin{document}" or
       "\end{document}" statements




       latexrevise does not make use of external commands and thus should run
       on any platform  supporting PERL v5 or higher.
