SYNOPSIS

Idiff interactively merges file1 and file2 onto standard output. Wherever file1 and file2 differ, idiff displays the differences in the style of ``diff –n'' on standard error and prompts the user to select a chunk. Valid responses are:
<     Use the chunk from file1.
>     Use the chunk from file2.
=     Use the diff output itself.
q<, q>, q=

Idiff invokes diff(1) to compare the files. The –b and –w flags, if passed, are passed to diff.
