In order to have these procedures available to all
personnel, a PDF file is generated for all equipment's.
Whenever there is a change in the maintenance procedure of
any equipment, a new PDF file is generated to replace the
old one that was generated previously. Afterwards, an email
is sent to the managers with the old PDF file and the new
The managers then verify that the
changes made to the procedures are correct. Rather than
examining character by character each lines of both files,
they use Compare PDF to see a report indicating the changes
that were made. Compare PDF software is generating these
reports in a command line mode.

"I was faced with the daunting task of comparing two large documents,
provided to me only in PDF format, with over 130 pages each. I had hoped to
use Adobe Acrobat ("standard", not the free reader) to do the comparison,
but I recently upgraded from version 5 to version 7 and found that it no
longer supports PDF compares. I have been told that I now need an additional expensive upgrade to Acrobat "professional". At this point I was
a bit upset at Adobe, so I searched the internet for an alternative, and
found PDF Compare.
You offered a free 30-day trial, so I tried it. Within minutes it was obvious that it did a good job of comparing the PDFs. I guess that I could
have kept the report file and not purchased the software, but I have a personal policy that if I get value out of a trial/demo, then I buy it. It
keeps encouraging innovation.
As I mentioned, the compare was fast and accurate. The only problem I had was with printing the results. I could print in
black&white at any one of several laser printers on our network. But, I
wanted to print in color, since the report is obviously intended to be in
color. Unfortunately, the few color laser printers balked. They printed
only some pages, skipping others. Rather odd. Well, that might just be the
specific PC &/or network setup &/or printer. So, I had to play a while: I
used WORD XP to convert the HTML to DOC format. I then used WORD to paginate. (Note: The original HTML did not seem to have pages; rather, it
was one very large page over 7000 lines long. Yes, ther were a lot of changes between the documents; I am glad I did not try to find them
Great software, very reasonable price".
