Here I find it for you ...

================

REQUIREMENTS

Perl 5.6 or higher must be installed (5.8 if different encodings are used).
  The latexdiff script makes use of the Perl package Algorithm::Diff (available 
from www.cpan.org, current version 1.19). You can either install this
package, or
use the standalone version of latexdiff, latexdiff-so, which has
version 1.15 of
this package inlined and does not require external installation of
the package. Because latexdiff uses internal functions of Algorithm:Diff whose 
calling format or availability can change without notice, the
preferred method is
now to use the standalone version.

For those with very dated perl installations, the stand-alone obsolete 
version 0.1 of latexdiff is provided as latexdiff-0.1.  It is possible 
that in some very special cases latexdiff-0.2 yields better results 
than the current version, so in order to assure reproducability I provide
this version, too, as latexdiff-0.2.  However, these obsolete versions
should be
avoided if possible, and are no longer supported.

INSTALLATION UNIX/LINUX

The basic installation procedure is almost trivial:

1. Copy latexdiff and latexrevise into a directory which is in the
   search path and make them executable.  If the Algorithm::Diff
   package is not installed, use latexdiff-so instead of latexdiff.

2. Copy latexdiff.1 and latexrevise.1 into the correct man directory

The attached Makefile contains example commands to carry out above 
steps as root for a typical UNIX installation. Type 

  make install          (for the stand alone version)
or
  make install-ext      (for the version using the external Algorithm::Diff)

to get it rolling.  You can type

  make test
or
  make test-ext

to test both versions on a brief example before installation
