       nymerge - tool to update and merge specialized-format patches


       nymerge merge old new options [ print ] [ .go ]


       nymerge  is  a tool in the Nypatchy suite of programs for working with Patchy Master Files
       (PAM files); see nypatchy(1).  Specifically, it can update a  PAM  file  old  with  a  new
       version  number and date/time stamp, optionally also merging in updated source code from a
       separate PAM file merge, and saving the result to file new.  The default file extension of
       these three files is presumed to be ".car".


       The  merge file merge may be replaced with "-" if there is nothing to merge.  print is the
       file to which informational output should be written (the default is  standard  output  if
       omitted), and options is a sequence of single-character flags.

       The  command should be ended with ".go" unless one wants to enter the Nypatchy interactive


       Note that options should be  given  as  a  single  string  of  characters  with  no  space
       separation  and  no  use  of  the  - character (except that it can be used in place of the
       options field if no options are desired).  Alphabetic options are not case-sensitive.

       F      Update only the first PAM file title.

       H      Print help information only.

       P      Log only the patch names, not the decks.

       Q      "quick" - Do not log printing of patch or deck names.

       U      Update version/date/time on all PAM titles found on the file.

       +      Inhibit the initial page-eject.
