Node:More or Fewer Messages, Next:, Up:patch Messages

Controlling the Verbosity of patch

You can cause patch to produce more messages by using the --verbose option. For example, when you give this option, the message Hmm... indicates that patch is reading text in the patch file, attempting to determine whether there is a patch in that text, and if so, what kind of patch it is.

You can inhibit all terminal output from patch, unless an error occurs, by using the -s, --quiet, or --silent option.
