How to make patch files
Posted on 2000-05-11
This must be an FAQ, but I cannot find it anyway. The linux guys produces patches for their source tree when moving from one version ot another
and I can do a
patch -p0 < patch
to upgrade the src tree.
So how are these patches made?
Suppose I have two versions of something
each source tree has a bunch of subdirectories in, containing any files which might change. How do I make a patch file so that someone has their source code in
can patch from one version to another.
Thanks in advance,
