Patch is a utility used to apply diffs (or patches) to files, which
are usually source code.
Larry Wall wrote the original version of patch.  Paul Eggert removed
patch's arbitrary limits; added support for binary files, setting
file times, and deleting files; and made it conform better to POSIX.
Other  contributors include Wayne Davison, who added unidiff support,
and David MacKenzie, who added configuration and backup support.
