I finally convinced myself to learn the fine art of applying patches, only to be stopped dead in my tracks by a broken link: the url that the 'patch' utility manual link points to is 404 - http://www.rt.com/man/patch.1.html is no longer valid.

I just updated the link. You just needed to Google 'patch manual page'.--Tim Hunt 13:03, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
