Most of us working in open source projects need to generate modification on a special part of code.
After making changes we need to send it. Only the difference in the file is needed to be sent.
So how to create a difference(diff) file ? Simple .Follow these steps
diff <original dir>X.c <working dir>X.c > “diff file”
Here diff file may be X.c.diff.
X.c is a c language file.
Now if we receive the diff file, how to join(patch) it with our orginal file? See below
patch X.c X.c.diff
Yesterday was software freedome day in Malabar Christian College, Kozhikode.
I was unlucky to miss my Software Freedom Day Celebrations. We had an seminar at
our college on Embedded systems.
The sad thing is that I didnt met any of the members of SMC which I was in search to meet.
I think if I have another chance I will meet them.
