Xstrata is a major global diversified mining group

I'm an analyst/programmer for the IS department of Xstrata Copper/CCR. Our goal is to be able to generate a PDF report containing the necessary steps required for the equipment maintenance.

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 one.

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'm a quality assurance tester for my firm and I have been searching for some basic comparison utilities for text files, pdfs, directories, file compares etc.


We develop our Operator/Customer manuals in FrameMaker and a PDF is created and viewable by many users using Acrobat Reader. Compare PDF tool provides an easy way for someone to compare two versions of the manuals.


"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 manually.)

Great software, very reasonable price".
