I'm following the following guide:
which uses a bash script as the mergetool that essentially calls vimdiff.
After adding the script as my mergetool and then running git mergetool to
resolve a conflict, I was faced with this error:
git config option merge.tool set to unknown tool: diffconflicts
It then provides a list of mergetool candidates.
Does git restrict the user to which tools they can use as their mergetool?
If not, how do I get around the issue described above?
