I am trying to use
latexdiff to compare two .tex files, producing a .pdf with a markup similar to the "track changes" function in Microsoft Word (see https://www.sharelatex.com/blog/2013/02/16/using-latexdiff-for-marking-changes-to-tex-documents.html).
I have downloaded the
latexdiff files from CTAN and I have also downloaded Strawberry Perl. I am using MiKTeX to compile my two tex documents.
In the command line (DOS prompt) I have been trying to instruct
latexdiff to compare two very simple .tex files:
SAMPLE5.tex. I have been following the instructions in the USAGE section of the first URL I list here ("...using latexdiff..."), specifically:
To compare two documents simply run latexdiff in the command line like so:
latexdiff draft.tex revision.tex > diff.tex"
However, when I enter the following into the command line:
C:\Users\Kathryn\latexdiff SAMPLE4.tex SAMPLE5.tex > diff.tex
I get the following error message:
Input file SAMPLE$.tex does not exist. at C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\scripts\latexdiff\latexdiff line 513, <DATA> line 20026.
I suspect the problem is that the computer cannot find the file
SAMPLE4.tex and that I need to make
SAMPLE4.tex (and presumably also
SAMPLE5.tex) available in a directory that I can accurately specify in DOS.
I tried putting my two .tex files in
C:\Program Files\MikTeX 2.9\latexdiff but this did not work.
Can anyone here offer me some advice?
