     Re: patch/make problem


I tested it again after your email. Works on Linux and SunOS using the GNU
patch (even with patch v2.1 from 1996). Have not tried on the others.


vikas> uname -s -r
Linux 2.0.34

vikas> ls
nocol-4.2/             nocol-4.2-4.2.1.patch

vikas> patch -p0 < nocol-4.2-4.2.1.patch 
patching file `nocol-4.2/Configure'
patching file `nocol-4.2/HISTORY'
patching file `nocol-4.2/INSTALL'

vikas> ls -l nocol-4.2/utility/notifier.pl
