Thread: patch program that understands new files?

  1. patch program that understands new files?

    Is there a patch program in MINIX that understands new files?

    I could use the GNU diff (version 2.8.1) with the -N switch to generate
    a patch that contains new files. However, this patch was not
    understood by the patch program that comes with MINIX.

    I was using MINIX 3.1.2. The patch program that I was using was
    /usr/bin/patch. The diff program was /usr/local/bin/diff (installed by
    packman)

    The error message from the patch program was:

    Can't open

    Thanks!
