       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

       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.


       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.
