In response to a query I made recently on this list about finding out the fonts used in a pdf,
Michael Ummels sent a link to a disk image with the xpdf tools.
The link is:
A utility pdftotext amongst others will be installed in /usr/local/bin.
Just run the installer.
I have just tried to run pdfdiff.py and it works on my Mac OS X 10.6.6 provided you specify
the diff program to use (if you don't it tries to find a diff but appears to hang).
./pdfdiff.py -d opendiff A.pdf B.pdf
You need to have Xcode installed. And make pdfdiff.py executable with chmod +x pdfdiff.py.
If you don't have that, try -d diff instead.
All of this in Terminal!
