NAME

       meld - Visual diff and merge tool for the GNOME Desktop

SYNOPSIS

       meld [options]
       meld [options] FILE1
       meld [options] DIR1
       meld [options] FILE1 FILE2 [FILE3]
       meld [options] DIR1 DIR2 [DIR3]

DESCRIPTION

       Meld  is a graphical diff viewer and merge application for the GNOME desktop.  It supports
       2 and 3-file diffs, recursive  directory  diffs,  diffing  of  directories  under  version
       control  (Bazaar, CVS, Darcs, Fossil, Git, Mercurial, Monotone), as well as the ability to
       manually and automatically merge file differences.

OPTIONS

       --auto-compare, -a
              Automatically compare all differing files on startup.

       --auto-merge
              Automatically merge files

       --comparison-file=<file>
              Load a saved comparison from a Meld comparison file

       --diff FILE1|DIR1 FILE2|DIR2 [FILE3|DIR3]
              Create a diff tab for the given files or directories.  Note that "meld --diff FILE1
              FILE2"  is  functionally  equivalent  to  "meld  FILE1 FILE2".  However, the --diff
              argument can be given multiple times for one invocation of meld  which  allows  the
              user  to  automatically  initiate  multiple  diffs  when meld starts.  See examples
              below.

       --help, -h
              Print application help and usage.

       --label=<label>, -L <label>
              Set application window title to <label>.

       --newtab, -n
              Open the comparison as a new tab in an already-running instance.

       --output, -o
              Sets the save path for the middle buffer in a three-pane merge view. This is useful
              for  loading  the middle buffer from one file and saving it to another, for example
              in use as a version control merge helper.

       --unified, -u
              Ignored for compatibility

       --version
              Print application version and exit.

EXAMPLES

       meld
              Run meld without initiating a diff.

       meld FILE1
              Initiate a diff between FILE1 and the version-controlled copy of FILE1.

       meld DIR1
              Initiate a recursive diff between DIR1 and the version-controlled copy of DIR1.

       meld FILE1 FILE2
              Initiate a diff between FILE1 and FILE2.

       meld FILE1 FILE2 FILE3
              Initiate a 3-way diff between FILE1, FILE2, and FILE3.

       meld DIR1 DIR2
              Initiate a recursive diff between directory DIR1 and DIR2.

       meld DIR1 DIR2 DIR3
              Initiate a recursive 3-way diff between directory DIR1, DIR2, and DIR3.

       meld --diff FILE1 FILE2 --diff FILE3 FILE4
              Initiate a diff between FILE1 and FILE2, and a  separate  diff  between  FILE3  and
              FILE4.
