Up:Merging with patch
Reject File Names
The names for reject files (files containing patches that
patch could not find a place to apply) are normally the name
of the output file with
.rej appended (or
# if if using
.rej would make the backup file name too long).
Alternatively, you can tell
patch to place all of the rejected
patches in a single file. The
-r reject-file or
--reject-file=reject-file option uses reject-file as
the reject file name.
