  • How does 3-way merge actually work?

    Hi,

    Given left, center and right files, How does "/automerge" option of 3-way merge in Beyond compare 3 actually work? In what way it merges the files?

    Automerge is used from the command line to automatically merge files without showing the interface. It assumes you pass in conflict-free files; otherwise it will not create the output file. If combined with /force, it will create an output file with CVS-style conflict markers for further review.

    I would suggest using the graphical interface for awhile, until you are more comfortable with Merges and Conflict sections. The /automerge is designed more for automated solutions.
