Single patch generator tool compatible with makepatch format

This is a set of three simple tools written in sh1 for generating single patches for use in Ports. This set is ideal for creating a new patch when it is inconvenient or undesirable to use the “make makepatch” utility.

The first tool is “dupe” which is a quick copy utility. The second tool is “genpatch” which creates patches in the standards diff format and using the standard file name conventions. The last tool is “portfix” which runs “dupe”, an editor of choice, and “genpatch” serially as a macro as a convenient and quick way to create port patches.

Please see the dupe, genpatch, and portfix man pages for details.
