[version 002]

'patchview' merges a patch file and a source tree to a set of
temporary modified files. This enables better patch (re)viewing
and more viewable context. (hopefully)

The patchview script is here:

usage: patchview [-f] patchfile srctree {ver. 002}
-f : force tkdiff even if 'patch' has errors
-s : single tkdiff even if patchfile contains multiple files

It uses (requires) lsdiff (from patchutils) and tkdiff.

patchutils: http://cyberelk.net/tim/patchutils/
tkdiff: http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkdiff/


Thanks for Nick Wilson and K.R. Foley for patches.

Changes for ver. 002:
- add -s (single) option for only one tkdiff at a time
- better option parsing
- fixed use of 'mktemp'
- exit if mktemp fails
