SYNOPSIS

imerge [-x diff_flags] [-X sdiff_flags] source destination

DESCRIPTION

The imerge command is a utility to help merge one file to another interactively.

If given files both exist and are identical, it silently exits without doing anything.

If given files both exist and they differ, differences are shown using the diff(1) command and user is asked if the source file should be installed to the destination, they should be edited first, or the source file should be merged into the destination file interactively using the sdiff(1) command.

If the source file is missing, user is asked if the destination file should be deleted.

If the destination file is missing, user is asked if the source file should be installed to the destination.

Currently symbolic links are not supported. If either of given files is a symbolic link, no operation is performed.

OPTIONS

The following command line arguments are supported:

-x diff_flags Set command line flags for diff(1) to diff_flags. The default value is "-u".

-X sdiff_flags
  Set extra command line flags for sdiff(1) to sdiff_flags. The default value is "-a-s ".

ENVIRONMENT

EDITOR
  Name of the editor program to run when user chooses to edit files.

PAGER Name of the pager program to run when showing differences.

SEE ALSO

diff(1), sdiff(1)

HISTORY

The imerge utility was first released on 15 January, 2007.

This utility was (obviously) inspired by the mergemaster utility of
.Fx in hope of using part of its functionality stand-alone.
