apply-patch - apply a patch against the current directory, automatically detecting the patch strip level
apply-patch is a simply wrapper for the patch(1) utility. It has two usability advantages over using patch(1) alone, in the simple case of applying a patch: 1) it automatically detects the patch strip level (the -p parameter to patch(1)) 2) it takes the patch file in as a parameter, rather than as a stream on STDIN Note that PATCHFILE can also be an http or https URL, if you have the wget(1) utility installed.
