NAME
       latexrevise - selectively remove markup and text from latexdiff output

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

DESCRIPTION
       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.

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

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

       -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
           release.

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

                       \begin{envir}
                       ...
                       \end{envir}

           blocks.

       -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.

BUGS
       The current version is a beta version which has not yet been extensively
       tested, but worked fine locally.  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 serial number of latexrevise (Option
       --version).  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.

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

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