Patches in SVN

Posted on:June 3, 2010 at 03:39 AM

Found out how to create patches without Eclipse plugins:

What I basically have to do is, after downloading the latest revision using: svn co ant-core

and editing my files in Eclipse, I have to open a terminal window and type in: svn diff > ~/fix_ugly_bug.diff

The diff extension allows text editors (like Notepad++ and possibly gedit) to recognize the language and use syntax highlighting. However, I’ve also seen patches in the Ant Bugzilla which were diff files with a .patch extension. (See previous post) The original post can be found here:
