"$(git --exec-path)/git-mergetool--lib" DESCRIPTION This is not a command the end user would want to run. Ever. This documentation is meant for people who are studying the Porcelain-ish scripts and/or are writing new ones. The git-mergetool--lib scriptlet is designed to be sourced (using .) by other shell scripts to set up functions for working with Git merge tools. Before sourcing git-mergetool--lib, your script must set TOOL_MODE to define the operation mode for the functions listed below. diff and merge are valid values. FUNCTIONS get_merge_tool returns a merge tool. get_merge_tool_cmd returns the custom command for a merge tool. get_merge_tool_path returns the custom path for a merge tool. run_merge_tool launches a merge tool given the tool name and a true/false flag to indicate whether a merge base is present. $MERGED, $LOCAL, $REMOTE, and $BASE must be defined for use by the merge tool.
