I distinctly remember having to add -E on SunOS, and I would not be at
all surprised if, well, anyone else who doesn't use GNU patch had the

I assume you meant "/dev/nul instead of /dev/null" there?

By the way, standard English is "e.g." not "f.e."  It expands to
"exempli gratia".  Yes, that's Latin.  I blame the French.
