could you be more specific with the git driver? thanks! f. filippo Jun 14 '10 at 16: 49. @flpgdt: that would be a custom merge driver (defined in the. gitconfig file indeed). Emacs; Raspberry Pi; This manual is designed to be readable by someone with basic UNIX commandline skills, but no previous knowledge of Git.
Git also provides a tool called gitam[1 (am stands for" apply mailbox" ), The above is the description of a Git merge at the lowest level, to help you understand what conceptually happens under the hood.
Run git difftool toolhelp for the list of valid settings. If a diff tool is not specified, git difftool will use the configuration variable diff. tool. If the configuration variable diff. tool is not set, git difftool will pick a suitable default.
If the custom merge tool correctly indicates the success of a merge resolution with its exit code, then the configuration variable can be set to true. Otherwise, git mergetool will prompt the user to indicate the success of the resolution after the custom tool has exited.
the custom tool config value resides in not" merge. [tool. cmd" (silly me, spent an hour troubleshooting why git kept complaining about nonexisting tool) added double quotes for all file names so that files with spaces can still be found by the merge tool (I Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency. Git is easy to learn and has a tiny footprint with lightning fast performance.
It As you read briefly in Getting Started, you can specify Git configuration settings with the git config command. One of the first things you did was set up your name and email address: If your preferred editor is Emacs or Vim, merge. tool to tell Git what strategy to use, This will show you how to configure git with emerge and how to use emerge to resolve git merge conflicts.
Emerge can be thought of as an industrial strength mergeconflict resolution tool, and is especially useful when merging a large new change with an existing commit or branch. This resolves cases with more than two heads, but refuses to do a complex merge that needs manual resolution.
It is primarily meant to be used for bundling topic branch heads together. This is the default merge strategy when pulling or merging more than one branch. Controls which merge tool is used by gitmergetool[1. The list below shows Two ways git mergegit pull can fail. There are 2 ways in which git merge (or a git pull, which is a git fetch and then a git merge) can fail: Git can fail to start the merge Since the emacs Q version will actually be expand to emacs Q f emergefilescommand tmpfileA fileB CategoryComparing
