comparepdfcmd is used to compare two PDF
files—textually or visually.
1.1.5 in development
- Added support for JSON reports (.jsn or .json).
- Updated some of the libraries comparepdfcmd uses.
- Added a highlight-transparency option which can be set in a
.ini configuration file's [general] section. This
makes it possible for you to set the balance between how visible
the highlighting is vs. how clearly the highlighted differences
- Changed the default highlight transparency to 80% for PDF difference
reports (before it was 85%). This makes the highlighting stronger, and
still leaves the differences visible. It also makes the highlighting
consistent with PNG reports whose default has always been 80%.
- Minor updates to the manual and libraries used by comparepdfcmd.
- Eliminated the dependency on the Windows wmic program by
bundling our cid.exe program in the package and using it to
obtain the Computer ID.
- Bug fix: comparepdfcmd now correctly prevents overwriting the PDF
files or folders being compared if the same file or folder is mistakenly
used as the report file or folder.
- Running comparepdfcmd.exe try will try to acquire and
register a free trial license key, so after running this command you
can freely use comparepdfcmd for up to 20 days.
- Added a getkey option. After you've bought one or more
licenses, to acquire a license on a particular computer, once
comparepdfcmd has been installed on it, run comparepdfcmd.exe getkey
order-id where order-id is the Order ID
that appeared on the payment confirmation page (and which is also
emailed to you). This will take you to the “get key” page with both the
Order ID and Computer ID correctly filled in. Then, once
you've clicked the issue license key button, you can register the key
by running comparepdfcmd.exe register key.
- Added a -s or --show option. If the PDFs are
different and -r or --report is used to get a PDF
report, this option will make comparepdfcmd show the report in your PDF
- Added a -m or --manual or manual option.
Use this option to show comparepdfcmd's manual in your PDF reader.
- If you use the license option, comparepdfcmd will show the
license in your PDF reader rather than as text output to the console.
- If you use the try or buy option, comparepdfcmd
will try to open the web page you need to visit, in addition to
explaining how to get a free trial or buy a license key.
- When comparing two folders of PDF files, report folders and
subfolder are now only created when necessary, i.e., when there are
differences to save in a report.
- First public release of this diffpdfc
