I have a merge tool that does syntax highlighting based on the file extension. Given this: > + BACKUP="./$MERGED.BACKUP.$ext$tmpsuffix" > + LOCAL="./$MERGED.LOCAL.$ext$tmpsuffix" > + REMOTE="./$MERGED.REMOTE.$ext$tmpsuffix" > + BASE="./$MERGED.BASE.$ext$tmpsuffix" I guess I lose syntax highlighting if I were to use mergetool.tmpsuffix; but then I don't use Eclipse. Could it be that this is really just a band-aid for Eclipse users, not IDEs in general as you are hinting in the Documentation of the new variable? -- Hannes -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
