Name : patch Product : Fedora 21 Version : 2.7.3 Release : 1.fc21 URL : http://www.gnu.org/software/patch/patch.html Summary : Utility for modifying/upgrading files Description : The patch program applies diff files to originals. The diff command is used to compare an original to a changed file. Diff lists the changes made to the file. A person who has the original file can then use the patch command with the diff file to add the changes to their original file (patching the file).
Patch should be installed because it is a common way of upgrading applications.
This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use su -c 'yum update patch' at the command line. For more information, refer to "Managing Software with yum", available at http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/.
