NAME

       diff2patches - Extract non-debian/ patches from .diff.gz files

SYNTAX

       diff2patches filename
       diff2patches --help|--version

DESCRIPTION

       Extracts patches from .diff.gz which apply to files outside the “debian/” directory scope.
       A patch is created for each modified file.  Each patch is named according to the  path  of
       the modified file, with “/” replaced by “___”, and an extension of “.patch”.

OPTIONS

       filename
           Extract patches from filename which apply outside the “debian/” directory.

           Output help information and exit.

       --version
           Output version information and exit.

FILES

       debian/control
              Existence of this file is tested before any patch is extracted.

       debian/
       debian/patches/
              Patches are extracted to one of these directories.  “debian/patches/” is preferred,
              if it exists.  If DEB_PATCHES is present in the environment, it will override  this
              behavior (see “ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES” section below).

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       DEB_PATCHES
              When  defined  and  points  to an existing directory, patches are extracted in that
              directory and not under “debian/” nor “debian/patches/”.
