\fBcomparepdf\fP is a command line application used to compare two PDF
The default comparison mode is text mode where the text of each
corresponding pair of pages is compared. As soon as a difference is
detected the program terminates with a message (unless \-v0 is set) and
an indicative return code.
The OPTIONS are \-ct or \-\-compare=text (the default) for text mode
comparisons or \-ca or \-\-compare=appearance for visual comparisons
(useful if diagrams or other images have changed), and \-v=1 or
\-\-verbose=1 for reporting differences (and saying nothing for matching
files): use \-v=0 for no reporting or \-v=2 for reporting both different
and matching files.
