[difftool "bcomp"]
        path = "/mnt/c/Program\\ Files/Beyond\\ Compare\\ 4/BCompare.exe"
        cmd = "/mnt/c/Program\\ Files/Beyond\\ Compare\\ 4/BCompare.exe" "$(wslpath -aw $LOCAL)" "$(wslpath -aw $REMOTE)"
[merge]
        tool = bcomp
[mergetool]
        prompt = false
[mergetool "bcomp"]
        path = "/mnt/c/Program\\ Files/Beyond\\ Compare\\ 4/BCompare.exe"
        cmd = "/mnt/c/Program\\ Files/Beyond\\ Compare\\ 4/BCompare.exe" "$(wslpath -aw $LOCAL)" "$(wslpath -aw $REMOTE)" "$(wslpath -aw $BASE)" "$(wslpath -aw $MERGED)"
