       git-mergetool--lib - Common Git merge tool shell scriptlets

SYNOPSIS
       TOOL_MODE=(diff|merge) . "$(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.
