dpatch-convert-diffgz(1) Convert a debian .diff.gz to a dpatch file


dpatch-convert-diffgz patchno patchname
dpatch-convert-diffgz patchno_patchname


This manual page documents briefly the dpatch-convert-diffgz command which simply generates a dpatch file from an existing Debian .diff.gz file.

It does so, by building the sources with dpkg-buildpackage, and operating on the resulting Debian .diff.gz.


dpatch is deprecated, please switch to the `3.0 (quilt)' Debian source package format instead. See http://wiki.debian.org/Projects/DebSrc3.0#FAQ for a short guide on how to do it.
