Say I have two processes that append lines to copies of the same original (parent) file (
copy_B). If I
diff these copies, can
diff ever conclude that we have a conflict? (i.e. can it ever conclude that
copy_B made edits to the same line)?
Note that none of the processes remove lines, they both add lines, but I wonder if
git) could ever conclude that they were editing the same line (as opposed to concluding that they both added different lines)
In my case specifically, I am working with
csv files (both processes append records to their own copies of a
csv file, i.e. the original
csv file being the same at the beginning), and I am hoping to git merge these csv files hopefully automatically without conflicts. Can I make that assumption?
Assuming that both processes are appending lines to the same file on their own branches that we hope to merge onto master at some point. Is there any way to tell git (diff) that they both correspond to additions to have it automatically merge the changes (adding entries perhaps in block, e.g. all of A's additions followed by B's additions)
