I'm using Mutt, and want to apply an nntp patch. I downloaded the patch, but how do I apply it? There's no single file for me to apply it to using the patch <file> <file> command.
patch is smart and will figure some stuff out for
you and patch multiple files if need be.
get the source code for the version of Mutt
the patch is against
put the archive in the same dir as the patch
extract Mutt's source
cd into it
gzcat ../patch-name.gz | patch
build mutt as usual
Thanks. Actually, I used the patch < [patch filename]> command and it worked just fine. I wonder what the difference is?
