Subject: vimdiff usage
I'm just learning how to use vimdiff to find the difference between
two files. I know there are many ways to start it. I'm interested in
using it after I already have vim running. Here's what I did.
- open first file
- ":sp" to split the window
- open second file in second window
- ":diffthis" in both buffers
- "]c" to move to next difference
- "[c" to move to previous difference
That seemed to work fine. Then I wanted to turn it off, so I did this.
- ":set nodiff" in both buffers
- ":set noscrollbind" in both buffers
Is there an easier way to set it up or turn it off?
