.TH MELD 1 "26 Sept 2010"
.SH NAME
\fBmeld\fP \- Visual diff and merge tool for the GNOME Desktop
.SH SYNOPSIS
\fBmeld\fR [options]
.br
\fBmeld\fR [options] FILE1
.br
\fBmeld\fR [options] DIR1
.br
\fBmeld\fR [options] FILE1 FILE2 [FILE3]
.br
\fBmeld\fR [options] DIR1 DIR2 [DIR3]
.SH DESCRIPTION
\fBMeld\fR 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.
.SH OPTIONS
.TP
\fB\-\-auto-compare, \-a\fR
.br
Automatically compare all differing files on startup.
.TP
\fB\-\-diff FILE1|DIR1 FILE2|DIR2 [FILE3|DIR3]\fR
.br
Create a diff tab for the given files or directories.
Note that "\fBmeld\fR \-\-diff FILE1 FILE2" is functionally equivalent
to "\fBmeld\fR FILE1 FILE2". However, the \fB\-\-diff\fR argument can
be given multiple times for one invocation of \fBmeld\fR which allows
the user to automatically initiate multiple diffs when \fBmeld\fR starts.
See examples below.
.TP
\fB\-\-help, \-h\fR
.br
Print application help and usage.
.TP
\fB\-\-LABEL=<label>, \-L <label>\fR
.br
Set application window title to <label>.
.TP
\fB\-\-version\fR
.br
Print application version and exit.
