NAME

       debian/patches/script.dpatch - self applying patch

SYNOPSIS

       debian/patches/script.dpatch -patch [directory]
       debian/patches/script.dpatch -unpatch [directory]
       debian/patches/script.dpatch -pkg-custom [directory]

DESCRIPTION

       A  dpatch  is  a  program  that  modifies  the  source  tree in a given
       directory. How it does that is entirely up to the person writing it. It
       can  be  a  script  that calls patch(1) with the appropriate options, a
       complicated perl script that does some deep magic,  or  anything  else.
       The  only  requirement  is  that it MUST accept the -patch and -unpatch
       options, followed by  the  destination  (or  working)  directory,  when
       specified.  For  the sake of compatibility, the second argument is only
       present when  a  working  directory  was  explicitly  set  with  dpatch
       --workdir.

       For  some of the dpatch(1) features to work, the script should follow a
       common style: there should be a line near the top of the file with  the
       following  format: "filename -- author <email>". And one or more "# DP:
       description" lines. These will be used by dpatch cat for example.

EXAMPLES

       One can find dpatch examples under /usr/share/doc/dpatch/examples/.
