       latexrevise - selectively remove	markup and text	from latexdiff output

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

       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.

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

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

       -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 annotations	which should be	removed	from the file before

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



       -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.

       The current version is a	beta version which has not yet been
       extensively tested. It has not been actively maintained so might	not
       process output of newer versions	of latexdiff entirely correctly.
       Please submit bug reports using the issue tracker of the	github
       repository page, or send them
       to tilmann -- AT	--  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


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