Tips for Patch Consumers

A patch producer should tell recipients how to apply the patches, so the first rule of thumb for a patch consumer is to follow the instructions supplied with the patch.

GNU diff can analyze files with arbitrarily long lines and files that end in incomplete lines. However, older versions of patch cannot patch such files. If you are having trouble applying such patches, try upgrading to a recent version of GNU patch.
