vimdiff command line options - wrap

I want vimdiff to wrap my text by default.

Is there a .vimdiffrc file?
Can I run vimdiff --wrap $file1 $file2 somehow to wrap lines?

While in vimdiff I can run the command
:set wrap

But I want this as the default and can not figure this out.

if I'm not completely mistaken vimdiff uses exactly the same options as vim does.

So your ~/.vimrc file will be used, if it's there.

It should contain a line "set wrap", and that's it.

There is no option --wrap, however.
