I've been trying to find some information that can help me understand exactly what 3-way conflicts really are.  WinCVS has an option to produce 3-way conflict files, which I believe translates to the -3 switch in CVSNT.


According the the cvsnt docs, -3 switch "Provide 3-way conflicts.".  However, I have no idea what that means.


I've done a google search on 3way conflicts, but cannot seem to find anything relevant anywhere.


Can anyone point me to some useful reference information and/or exmaples as to way exactly 3way conflict files are?
