whatsnew - print a newly modified file, marking changes SYNOPSIS
whatsnew [-n] file.c file.c.cdif OPTIONS
-n Output line length EXAMPLES
whatsnew file.c file.c.cdif # Print file.c with changes marked whatsnew -70 file.c file.c.cdif # Same as above, but with 70 col line DESCRIPTION
It commonly occurs that cdifs are posted to USENET. After installing a cdif file, it is sometimes desirable to print out the new file, with the changes marked on it. Whatsnew does precisely this, with the changes + and ! printed in the right-hand margin. SEE ALSO

diffpp - pretty-print diff outputs with GNU enscript SYNOPSIS
diffpp currentfile < diff-file DESCRIPTION
Diffpp converts diff(1)-program's output files to a format suitable to be printed with GNU enscript(1). Program annotates the changes with enscript's special escapes so enscript can highlight the modified portions of the file. All changed and added lines are printed with gray-background, deleted lines are marked with minus (`-') characters; diffpp prints one minus character for each deleted line. EXAMPLES
The easiest way to use diffpp is to use it as an input filter for enscript. If an input filter is specified for enscript it is used to pre-process the incoming data-stream. Filtering does not alter any header strings or file-timestamps which might be printed on enscript headers; only the incoming data is modified. enscript -G2re --filter='rcsdiff %s | diffpp %s' *.c *.h Print the changes between current source files and their latest RCS-versions. enscript -G2re --filter='diff %s~ %s | diffpp %s' *.c *.h Print changes between source files and the corresponding backup-files.
