       git-mergetool - Run merge conflict resolution tools to resolve merge conflicts

       git mergetool [--tool=<tool>] [-y | --[no-]prompt] [<file>...]

       Use git mergetool to run one of several merge utilities to resolve merge conflicts. It is
       typically run after git merge.

       If one or more <file> parameters are given, the merge tool program will be run to resolve
       differences on each file (skipping those without conflicts). Specifying a directory will
       include all unresolved files in that path. If no <file> names are specified, git mergetool
       will run the merge tool program on every file with merge conflicts.

       -t <tool>, --tool=<tool>
	   Use the merge resolution program specified by <tool>. Valid values include emerge,
	   gvimdiff, kdiff3, meld, vimdiff, and tortoisemerge. Run git mergetool --tool-help for
	   the list of valid <tool> settings.

	   If a merge resolution program is not specified, git mergetool will use the
	   configuration variable merge.tool. If the configuration variable merge.tool is not
	   set, git mergetool will pick a suitable default.

	   You can explicitly provide a full path to the tool by setting the configuration
	   variable mergetool.<tool>.path. For example, you can configure the absolute path to
	   kdiff3 by setting mergetool.kdiff3.path. Otherwise, git mergetool assumes the tool is
	   available in PATH.

	   Instead of running one of the known merge tool programs, git mergetool can be
	   customized to run an alternative program by specifying the command line to invoke in a
	   configuration variable mergetool.<tool>.cmd.

	   When git mergetool is invoked with this tool (either through the -t or --tool option
	   or the merge.tool configuration variable) the configured command line will be invoked
	   with $BASE set to the name of a temporary file containing the common base for the
	   merge, if available; $LOCAL set to the name of a temporary file containing the
	   contents of the file on the current branch; $REMOTE set to the name of a temporary
	   file containing the contents of the file to be merged, and $MERGED set to the name of
	   the file to which the merge tool should write the result of the merge resolution.

	   If the custom merge tool correctly indicates the success of a merge resolution with
	   its exit code, then the configuration variable mergetool.<tool>.trustExitCode can be
	   set to true. Otherwise, git mergetool will prompt the user to indicate the success of
	   the resolution after the custom tool has exited.

	   Print a list of merge tools that may be used with --tool.

       -y, --no-prompt
	   Don't prompt before each invocation of the merge resolution program.

	   Prompt before each invocation of the merge resolution program. This is the default
	   behaviour; the option is provided to override any configuration settings.

       git mergetool creates *.orig backup files while resolving merges. These are safe to remove
       once a file has been merged and its git mergetool session has completed.

       Setting the mergetool.keepBackup configuration variable to false causes git mergetool to
       automatically remove the backup as files are successfully merged.
