NAME
       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 por‐
       tions 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.
