On Vim there’s a nice diffsplit view:
One can do a diff with
diffsplit file2 and then you can copy or import changes from the one or the other with
dp. Other usefull cmds:
]c - advance to the next block with differences [c - reverse search for the previous block with differences do (diff obtain) - bring changes from the other file to the current file dp (diff put) - send changes from the current file to the other file zo - unfold/unhide text zc - refold/rehide text zr - unfold both files completely zm - fold both files completely
