Hello Andreas,

Thank you very much for the new release of patch!

I got it and installed it on a modified Slackware 12.1, no prob.
I got this warning, I don't know if it is something useful for you:

src/patch.o: In function `make_temp':
warning: the use of `mktemp' is dangerous, better use `mkstemp'

I will test patch more in the next days.. in any case, I saw you put
there some additional workarounds for Perforce,
have you considered ClearCase yet?

There is some special support for it already, since when I patch and a
file is not currently checked out, it asks if I want to have them
checked out automatically, and it works (although the displayed text
says that he will checkout reserved, while he checkouts unreserved,
which is however preferable to me).

In addition to that, I always had a problem when trying to apply -p0
patches that contain versioned filenames (containing "@@").

Currently since patch does not apply patches in those conditions, I
have a version of the patch always stripped of the "@@..." part of the
in order to be able to apply it (I have a diff_decc script).

For my use case, not considering the "@@..." part as significant
during the comparison would fix my problem, but maybe you have other
ideas in mind.
Let me know if you need some more concrete examples, and if you can
help with advice for my use case.
