Here I am going to configure P4merge to work with Git. First, let's find where P4merge has installed.
By default, the programs will installed in the Local disk, under that select the program files and in that, you can see a folder by the name called perforce, which is the name of the company that makes p4merge.
Going into that folder you can see a p4merge application file, Just double click on that, it will launch the p4merge. now, we know the location, just close and go back and then open the Git Bash.
I am going to position the Git Bash window so that, I can able to see the address path of the application file.
So by using the Git config command, am going to config Git to use p4merge as the merge resolution tool.
I will pass the command as git config --global merge.tool p4merge, because these settings are needed to be at the user level and then press enter.
The second command will tell Git where to look for the p4merge tool. git config --global mergetool.p4merge.path 'c:/programfiles/perforce/p4merge.exe'

Note: the direction of the slashes uses the familiar Unix-style, as opposed to the backslash of the Windows-style.

So the next command tells Git not to prompt and not to launch p4merge, so every time we need to resolve a conflict, We will pass another command to resolve a conflict as git config --global mergetool.prompt false
Now setup the difftool configuration, same as in the last example, we are going to use a similar syntax, except use difftool, git config diff.tool p4merge and press enter and git config --global difftool.p4merge.path 'c:/programfiles/perforce/p4merge.exe' and press enter.
The last command to configure out difftool is git config --global difftool.prompt false

  • Now let's check for the list of configuration we have done, git config --global --list press enter.
  • So along with the other set, we have our mergetool and difftool configuration as well.
  • So now, pass the command git config --global -e will invoke our default editor with a .gitconfig file.

Most of the configuration that is set up in the .gitconfig file is related to the difftool and merge tool. Now let's close the default window by using Ctrl+W and Alt+F4.
In the next article called Git Comparisons, you are going to understand clearly about how p4merge is useful in comparing, merging and branching.
