EXAMPLES

       Edit the 021_debian patch of Heimdal:

       ~/heimdal-0.3d$ dbs-edit-patch -t/tmp 021_debian
       Extracting source heimdal-0.3d.tar.gz ... successful.
       Applying patch 001_replay ... successful.
       etc.
       Copying heimdal-0.3d to heimdal-0.3d-old ... successful.
       Applying patch 021_debian ... successful.

       Edit files under /tmp/021_debian/heimdal-0.3d as required, then execute
       /tmp/021_debian/dbs_update_patch to save the results.

       Technote:   dbs-edit-patch  extracts  the  original  source  code  into
       /tmp/021_debian/heimdal-0.3d, applies all  patches  before  021_debian,
       copies  the result to /tmp/021_debian/heimdal-0.3d-old, and applies the
       last patch 021_debian (if it exists). Also, it creates a shell  archive
       which will create the diff between the old and new directories:

       ~/heimdal-0.3d$ ls -l /tmp/021_debian
       total 12
       -rwxr-xr-x    1 bam      users         112 Jan 31 13:31 dbs-update-patch*
       drwxr-xr-x   14 bam      users        4096 Jan 31 13:31 heimdal-0.3d/
       drwxr-xr-x   14 bam      users        4096 Jan 31 13:31 heimdal-0.3d-old/
       ~/heimdal-0.3d$ cat /tmp/021_debian/dbs-update-patch
       #!/bin/sh
       diff -ruN /tmp/021_debian/heimdal-0.3d /tmp/021_debian/heimdal-0.3d-old > ./debian/patches/021_debian
