diff-pdf is a tool for visually comparing two PDFs. It takes two PDF files as arguments. By default, its only output is its return code, which is 0 if there are no differences and 1 if the two PDFs differ. If given the --pdf option, diff-pdf produces a PDF file with visually highlighted differences:
$ diff-pdf --output-diff=diff.pdf a.pdf b.pdf
Another option is to compare the two files visually in a simple GUI, using the --view argument:
$ diff-pdf --view a.pdf b.pdf
