       This manual page documents briefly the kdiff3 tool.

       This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
       not have a manual page.  For comprehensive help, please see khelpcenter help:/kdiff3.

       kdiff3 is a program that

          ·  compares two or three input files

          ·  shows the differences line by line and character by character

          ·  provides an automatic merge-facility and

          ·  an integrated editor for comfortable solving of merge-conflicts

          ·  and has an intuitive graphical user interface

          ·  and allows directory comparison and merge.


       This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long  options  starting  with
       two  dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below. For a full summary of options,
       run kdiff3 --help.

       -m, --merge
                 Merge the input.

                 Explicit base file. For compatibility with certain tools.

       -o, --output file
                 Output file. Implies -m. E.g.: -o newfile.txt

       --out file
                 Output file, again. (For compatibility with certain tools.)

       --auto    No GUI if all conflicts are auto-solvable. (Needs -o file)

       --qall    Don't solve conflicts automatically. (For compatibility...)

       --fname alias
