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.

Install latexdiff in Cygwin by:

setup-x86_64 -P perl texlive-binextra

In regular Linux install latexdiff by:

apt install latexdiff

You can 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).
