Reconstituting code from diffs

Does anyone have an idea on how to diff 2 C code files to an output file of the diffs.
Then use the diffs output file to reconstitute the original C code file from that diff output.
Yes this is something that would benefit me from something I am working on.

Welcome to the forum.

See man patch:
       patch - apply a diff file to an original

       patch [options] [originalfile [patchfile]]

       but usually just

       patch -pnum <patchfile

       patch takes a patch file patchfile containing a difference listing
       produced by the diff program and applies those differences to one or
       more original files, producing patched versions.

Best wishes ... cheers, drl
