VIMDIFF(1)                                                          VIMDIFF(1)



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

SYNOPSIS
       vimdiff [options] file1 file2 [file3 [file4]]

       gvimdiff

DESCRIPTION
       Vimdiff  starts  Vim  on two (or three or four) 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 differences 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.

OPTIONS
       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).
