VIMDIFF(1)			     General Commands Manual			       VIMDIFF(1)

NAME
       vimdiff - edit two or three versions of a file with Vim and show differences

SYNOPSIS
       vimdiff [options] file1 file2 [file3]

       gvimdiff

DESCRIPTION
       Vimdiff	starts	Vim on two (or three) files.  Each file gets its own window.  The differ-
       ences 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 differences to be high-
       lighted.
       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.

OPTIONS
       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).

       its" in Vim.
