Node:Merging Incomplete Lines, Next:, Previous:Bypassing ed, Up:diff3 Merging

How diff3 Merges Incomplete Lines

With -m, incomplete lines (see Incomplete Lines) are simply copied to the output as they are found; if the merged output ends in an conflict and one of the input files ends in an incomplete line, succeeding |||||||, ======= or >>>>>>> brackets appear somewhere other than the start of a line because they are appended to the incomplete line.

Without -m, if an ed script option is specified and an incomplete line is found, diff3 generates a warning and acts as if a newline had been present.
