git-rebase-patch(1) Rebases a patch


git-rebase-patch <patch-file>


Given you have a patch that doesn't apply to the current HEAD, but you know it applied to some commit in the past, git-rebase-patch will help you find that commit and do a rebase.


The patch to be applied.


$ git rebase-patch test.patch

could give you something like that:

Trying to find a commit the patch applies to...
Patch applied to dbcf408dd26 as 7dc8b23ae1a
First, rewinding head to replay your work on top of it...
Applying: test.patch
Using index info to reconstruct a base tree...
Falling back to patching base and 3-way merge...
Auto-merging README.txt

Then your last commit has the changes of the patch and is named test.patch.
