Installing Patches1) Download the patch file into the main directory of the emech distribution. For this example, the patch file is called patch.diff
bash$ ls COPYING README checkmech contrib patch.diff sample.set Makefile VERSIONS configure mech.help randfiles src bash$2) Use the patch command to install your downloaded patch. It may come up with 'Hunk <x> succeeded at <line>' warnings if you have installed more than one patch, but they can be safely ignored.
bash$ patch -p1 -i patch.diff patching file `src/combot.c' patching file `src/defines.h' patching file `src/global.h' patching file `src/structs.h' bash$
3) You can now compile and setup your emech as normal.
