       vimdiff	-  edit two or three versions of a file with Vim and show dif‐

       vimdiff [options] file1 file2 [file3]


       Vimdiff starts Vim on two (or three) files.  Each  file	gets  its  own
       window.	 The differences between the files are highlighted.  This is a
       nice way to inspect changes and to move changes	from  one  version  to
       another version of the same file.

       See vim(1) for details about Vim itself.

       When started as gvimdiff the GUI will be started, if available.

       In  each window the 'diff' option will be set, which causes the differ‐
       ences to be highlighted.
       The 'wrap' and 'scrollbind' options are set to make the text look good.
       The 'foldmethod' option is set to "diff", which puts  ranges  of	 lines
       without	changes in a fold.  'foldcolumn' is set to two to make it easy
       to spot the folds and open or close them.

       Vertical splits are used to align the lines, as if  the	"-O"  argument
       was used.  To use horizontal splits intead, use the "-o" argument.

       For all other arguments see vim(1).


       Most of Vim was made by Bram Moolenaar, with a lot of help from others.
       See ":help credits" in Vim.
