Use diff3 -A, -E (default), or -e, respectively.


Write to standard output instead of overwriting receiving-sibling.


See Misc common options. Suppress conflict warnings.

-L label

(up to three times) Specify the conflict labels for receiving-sibling, parent and other-sibling, respectively.


Note that -Vn is not a valid option for merge, in contrast to most other RCS commands (see Misc common options).
