    Here's a little (tiny, pathetic) utility that I occasionally find useful:

    I call it ""

    It's a perl script (sorry purists!) to run on a huge patch file (a la
    Linux patches) and pick out just the one you're interested in.

    # called with stdin = a patch stream, arg 1 = a filename
    # outputs only the patch that refers to the filename

    $filename = shift(@ARGV);
    while (<STDIN>) {
    $patchon = 0 if m#^---#;
    $patchon = 1 if m#^\+\+\+.*$filename#;
    print if $patchon;

    Example of use for the above problem:

    gzip -dc patch-2.0.24.gz | limitpatch net/core/sock.c | patch -p1
