Comparing Files And Interpreting The Information In The Input Windows

All manaul differences and conflicts are visible at one glance. The three input windows are assigned the letters “A”, “B” and “C”. Tired of many clicks? Add new sections by first selecting text in the lines that belong together in either input window as for copying to the clipboard.

Here is the first manual alignment. Remember that if you are doing a merge and you did not start the merge before the alignments, starting a merge at this point will reset your manual alignments. manuao

Subversion has tried to merge the changes that produced version B with your changes but it was not possible. Would you like to make a comment or contribute an update to this page? Which line should I select?

Note that window “C” is optional. The following figure illustrates this situation. When you selected another file via browsing or finished editing the filename here by pressing enter, the new file will be loaded and compared with the already loaded file s. Starting from KDiff’s Initial alignment right after loading the sourcesclick on the first line, annotated with a “1” in bright red.

The vertical line separating the summary column and the text is interrupted if the input file had no lines there.

Advanced merging – manual alignment with KDIFF3

When both other input files differ then the color used to express this is red by default “Conflict color” in the Settings. You can toggle between insert and overwrite mode with the insert key.

Then choose “Join selected Diffs” in the “Merge”-menu. This can help when you always want to choose one source only.

On rare occasions, KDiff3 will match common lines in the first place where you wanted to match in the second place.

Let us suppose that in the Subversion repository there is an initial version of a file which we will call version A.

You can specify the “Auto-Advance delay” in milli seconds between 0 and Have faith that it did take place and move on to step 2. This is easy to do in 2-way diff operations, but can raise some questions when doing a 3-way merge. The first line that is common across all 3 sources is the line containing the number “1”.

By clicking into this overview column the corresponding text will be shown. When you need both sources, or you want to edit after selecting, then you probably want to switch this off.

If we check the status of the file with the status command, we can see the conflict. Splits will be added above the first line and below the last line of the kdif3 text.

For each conflict you may select the content of any of the three versions buttons A, B and C to be included in the resulting file, or directly write the correct text in this file.

If you insist on using the menu, you can see the options for manual alignment in the screen shot below.

The command receives as arguments the kdiiff3 of the three files versions A, B and C and with the option -o we select the file where to store the result.
