# Track changes in LaTeX : latexdiff

For those who are familiar with Ms.Word you might know that there is a feature called Track Changes on the Review tab in Ms.Word. This feature is very useful to view tracked changes that we’ve made to the document. Now, how if we use $LaTeX$ editor? Can we track changes in LaTeX? The answer is : Sure, you can. 🙂

I just figure out today that we can use latexdiff to view tracked changes in LaTeX. Here’s what I have done to make latexdiff works in my office PC. My  PC OS  is Windows XP Version 2002.

1. Install Perl from activePerl.com
`perl latexdiff old.tex new.tex > diff.tex`
