latex-diff on Windows with Cygwin

The nifty Perl script  latexdiff generates highlighted “diff” differences between two versions of a LaTeX document. This is required in submitting academic paper revisions.

  • Cygwin: setup-x86_64 -P perl texlive-binextra
  • Linux: apt install latexdiff

Then use this script to execute recursively for all .tex files in the directory (useful for very large projects like PhD thesis or journal article).
