latexdiff I've used some years ago. But I run it only in the terminal.

I just want to run a markup processor in TeXShop. I think it should  
work as follows.

1.) I begin to write a document initial.tex.
2.) When I first typeset it a dialogue box should appear asking to  
protect the pdf file (initial.pdf). If not approved nothing happens.  
But if approved it works as follows:
3.) Later I do changes in the initial.tex file. When I save or  
typeset it again it should be not saved as initial.tex but as a new  
file initial-v2.tex. When I typeset the file the last pdf file  
(initial.pdf) should not be overwritten but should be automatically  
be created a new pdf.file (initial-v2.pdf) and should be  
automatically run latexdiff (or another script) to compare the files  
and creates a new pdf file that markups the differences (initial- 
diff.pdf) too.
4.) In the window of initial-diff.pdf should be a checkbox to approve  
»Accept all changes?« If checked and typeset initial-diff.pdf again  
now initial.pdf should be overwritten and initial-v1.pdf, -.tex and  
initial-diff.pdf should be deleted.
5.) If the checkbox left unchecked and initial.tex is changed again  
same procedure as 3.) but now it will be created initial-v3.tex/pdf  
compared with initial-v2 and the changes should be markuped in  
inititial-diff.pdf by other colours.

I would appreciate if three change runs could be markuped in the file  
inintial-diff.pdf (first changes red, second changes green, third  
changes blue).

Could somebody here write a script for TeXShop, or much more better  
has it allready written and could publish it?

Thanks a lot in advance and kind regards. Friedrich
