Following issue: I am up re-organizing the whole "externals" part in
trunk as you might have recognized already. In fact this is done now
with the single exception of a generic patching system, e.g. needed
for BeautifulSoup.py. (As usual) this is no problem under linux, but
becomes a major issue under win.
The mechanism I want to use is the well known diff-patch duo.
Therefore a "patch" executable/binary (OR python script) is needed
(for every OS). While this is kind of "built-in" in linux, win needs
extra-attention. This is what I found so far:
The executables do only depend on the Microsoft C-runtime
(msvcrt.dll) and not on an emulation layer like that provided by
Cygwin tools - windows ONLY not multi OS
Python script therefore multi OS - but does not support the full
diff-patch "command set" e.g. cannot create new files
Not a command-line tool like "patch" but a python library/module.
So I am stuck here and need some further knowledge, experience and
personal preferences from your side in order to make a good decicion.
In my opinion we should also keep further os (than just linux, mac,
win) in our mind, becuase they are very close to what we already have too.
Thanks for any help and Greetings
