       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 instead, 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.
