-Support for compare and merge viewers which show the
-content side-by-side.
-<h2>
-Package Specification</h2>
-
-The <b>ContentMergeViewer</b> is an abstract compare and merge viewer
-with two side-by-side content areas and an optional content area for a
-common ancestor (for three-way compare). Because the implementation makes
-no assumptions about the content type it is a subclass responsibility to
-deal with a specific type. Its subclass <b>ImageMergeViewer</b> in
-package org.eclipse.compare.internal shows how to base a simple
-mergeviewer for images on <b>ContentMergeViewer</b>.
-<p>
-
-A <b>ContentMergeViewer</b> accesses its model by means of a content
-provider which must implement the <b>IMergeViewerContentProvider</b> interface.
-<p>
-
-The <b>TextMergeViewer</b> is the standard concrete subclass of
-<b>ContentMergeViewer</b> for comparing and merging text content.
-<br>
-A text merge viewer uses the <b>org.eclipse.compare.rangedifferencer.RangeDifferencer</b>
-to perform a textual, line-by-line comparison of two (or three) input documents.
-For text lines that differ the <b>TextMergeViewer</b> uses an <b>ITokenComparator</b>
-to find longest sequences of matching and non-matching tokens.
-The <b>TextMergeViewer</b>'s
-default token compare works on characters separated by whitespace. If a
-different strategy is needed (for example, Java tokens in a Java-aware
-merge viewer), clients can create their own token comparators by implementing
-the <b>ITokenComparator</b> interface.
-<p>The <b>TextMergeViewer</b> not only works on whole documents but on
-subranges of documents too. In this case the viewer's input must be an
-<b>IDocumentRange</b> instead of an <b>IDocument</b>.
