meld - Visual diff and merge tool for the GNOME Desktop


meld [options]
meld [options] FILE1
meld [options] DIR1
meld [options] FILE1 FILE2 [FILE3]
meld [options] DIR1 DIR2 [DIR3]


Meld 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 (Bazaar, CVS, Darcs, Fossil, Git, Mercurial, Monotone), as well as the ability to
manually and automatically merge file differences.


--auto-compare, -a
Automatically compare all differing files on startup.

Automatically merge files

Load a saved comparison from a Meld comparison file

Create a diff tab for the given files or directories. Note that "meld --diff FILE1
FILE2" is functionally equivalent to "meld FILE1 FILE2". However, the --diff
argument can be given multiple times for one invocation of meld which allows the
user to automatically initiate multiple diffs when meld starts. See examples

--help, -h
Print application help and usage.

--label=<label>, -L <label>
Set application window title to <label>.

--newtab, -n
Open the comparison as a new tab in an already-running instance.

--output, -o
Sets the save path for the middle buffer in a three-pane merge view. This is useful
for loading the middle buffer from one file and saving it to another, for example
in use as a version control merge helper.

--unified, -u
Ignored for compatibility

Print application version and exit.


Run meld without initiating a diff.

Initiate a diff between FILE1 and the version-controlled copy of FILE1.

meld DIR1

Initiate a recursive diff between directory DIR1 and DIR2.

meld DIR1 DIR2 DIR3
Initiate a recursive 3-way diff between directory DIR1, DIR2, and DIR3.
