About BPatch

The information in this tab is based on the bpatch (1) man page written by Stefan Reuther, updated as necessary.

Synopsis

bpatch [options] old-file [ new-file ] [ <patch-file ]

Description

bpatch applies a binary patch generated by bdiff. Patches are read from standard input unless the --input option is used to specify an input file.

old-file is the same file as used as the first argument to bdiff. bpatch will create a copy of the file given as second argument to bdiff in new-file by using the information from old-file and patch-file. If new-file is omitted, the old file is replaced with the new file.

bpatch will detect if the patch does not match old-file, or if the patch has been garbled. Remember to transmit binary patches as binary files!

In case of an error, new-file will not be touched.

Options

-i PATCH-FILE
--input=PATCH-FILE
Read patch from specified file instead of standard input. Specifying --input=- does nothing. Use as an alternative to shell redirection.
-h
--help
.
Show help screen.
-v
--version
Show version number.
