Node:Saving the Changed File, Previous:Merging Incomplete Lines, Up:diff3 Merging

Saving the Changed File

Traditional Unix diff3 generates an ed script without the trailing w and q commands that save the changes. System V diff3 generates these extra commands. GNU diff3 normally behaves like traditional Unix diff3, but with the -i option it behaves like System V diff3 and appends the w and q commands.

The -i option requires one of the ed script options -AeExX3, and is incompatible with the merged output option -m.
