NAME

       cdbs-edit-patch - create or edit a CDBS simple-patchsys.mk patch

SYNOPSIS

       cdbs-edit-patch patchname

DESCRIPTION

       cdbs-edit-patch  creates  or  edits  patches  for use by the CDBS simple-patchsys.mk patch
       system.   For  more  information  about  CDBS   please   see   the   documentation   under
       /usr/share/doc/cdbs/.

       When  patchname exists, cdbs-edit-patch will set up a temporary working source tree, apply
       all patches up to and including patchname in lexicographic order, and spawn an interactive
       shell  for  the  developer.  The developer can then edit files in this working tree.  When
       the developer is done and exits the shell, cdbs-edit-patch updates  patchname  to  reflect
       the  changes  made.   To abort the process from the interactive shell, exit with a nonzero
       exit value.

       When patchname does not exist, cdbs-edit-patch will assume that  a  new  patch  should  be
       created.   As  with  the  above  scenario,  cdbs-edit-patch  will first create a temporary
       working source tree and apply all patches up to the  new  patch  in  lexicographic  order.
       When the shell is quit, cdbs-edit-patch will create patchname.
