Re: Where is patch?

Thanks for this! That trick is so handy in my opinion so it ought to be as a tip on the search page right under the search box!

After finishing the installation of gcc-core (which includes binutils as far as I understand) configure + make ran fine. I have now patch 2.5.9 compiled for Cygwin I believe. Or?

My intention was to look at the source code and see how it handles line endings. I do not know if that is realistic though. As I said before what I want it to do is:

1) Keep the line end style for the patched file.

2) Read the patch file and apply it even if it uses a different line end style.

This is simply what I expect of a text oriented tool. Comments and help are welcome! (But please no holy war on line end style. That is just improductive.)
