NAME
GenPat - A program to create patch files in VPatch format. SYNOPSIS
GenPat [-R] [-B=64] [-V] [-O] [-A=500] [source] [target] [patch.pat] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the GenPat command. This manual page was written for the Debian (TM) distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. Instead, it has documentation in the HTML format; see below. GenPat is a program that creates installer programs for Windows. OPTIONS
-R Replace a patch with same contents as source silently if it already exists. -B=64 Set blocksize (default=64), multiple of 2 is required. -V More verbose information during patch creation. -O Deactivate match limit of the -A switch (sometimes smaller patches). -A=500 Maximum number of block matches per block (improves performance). Default is 500, larger is slower. Use -V to see the cut-off aborts. EXIT STATUS
0 Success 1 Arguments missing 2 Other error 3 Source file already has a patch in specified patch file (=error) SEE ALSO
GenPat is documented more fully in the HTML file /usr/share/doc/nsis/Docs/VPatch/Readme.html. AUTHOR
