Dear TL-maintainers,

thanks a lot for adding latexdiff to TeXLive. It is great to have this tool now easily available. I use it with the 
"engine" (in TeXShop-speech) below.


# creates a version of a .tex file that has differences marked up

# assumes that a version filename-oldversion.tex exists

set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin)
set filename = "$1"
set newname = "${filename:r}.tex"
set oldname = "${filename:r}-oldversion.tex"
set diffname = "${filename:r}-differences.tex"

#run latexdiff on a file foo.tex and create foo-differences.tex
latexdiff --type=CULINECHBAR "$oldname" "$newname" > "$diffname"
#open the diff-file
open "$diffname"
