       meld - Visual diff and merge tool for the GNOME Desktop


       meld [options]
       meld [options] FILE1

       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 (Arch, Bazaar, Codeville,
       CVS, Darcs, Git, Mercurial, Monotone, RCS), as well as the  ability  to
       manually and automatically merge file differences.


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

       --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>.

              Print application version and exit.
