Thanks for the reply, btmiller. According to the manual, it didn't mention anything about zcat. So, does this mean that there are other ways to patch beside using zcat command? For example, just using
patch -p patch-name.gz
Is this correct?
You said that the patch maybe available in gzipped(gz) if it too big. So how do I apply patch for some source file using a patch file zipped in bz2 extension?
