Subject: conflict markers on recursive strategy with diff3 enabled
Date: Thu, 24 Oct 2019 18:13:57 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm sitting down hunting for conflict examples and while looking
through past conflicts in git I found one that has a format that I
hadn't seen before. When merging the parents of 8b79343fc0 we get

<<<<<<< HEAD

* Unlink the .pack and associated extension files.
* Does not unlink if 'force_delete' is false and the pack-file is
* marked as ".keep".
extern void unlink_pack_path(const char *pack_name, int force_delete);
||||||| merged common ancestors
>>>>>>>>> Temporary merge branch 2
>>>>>>> 8b79343fc0^2

That is with merge.conflictStyle set to diff3. What I would like to
know is if the details about how the additional information that is
not normally seen on a conflict has to be interpreted (to be read as
"the part about the temporary branches"). I see some explanation about
it in [1] but when checking inside "git help merge" all I see is that
when you are using diff3 you will get the content of the parent but
there's more stuff than just that. Is it documented somewhere?
