Merges two files interactively via a fullscreen text mode interface
Imediff2 merges two (slightly different) files interactively with a user-friendly fullscreen interface in text mode. It shows the differences between the two files (in color if the terminal supports them), lets you scroll the file, and toggles changes between the old and new versions one by one. Unlike split screen based merge tools, it shows only one version at a time, making it more WYSIWYG.
