	(<signal.h>): Do not include.
	(Chmod, Close, Fclose, Fflush, Fputc, Signal, Sprintf, Strcat,

	(plan_a): Rewrite for speed.
	Caller now assigns result to using_plan_a.
	Don't bother reading empty files; during dry runs they might not exist.
	Use ISSPACE, not isspace.

	correctly on arg.  Use POSIX symbol for open arg.

	* patch.c (backup, output, patchname, program_name): New vars.

	1 means hunks were rejected, 2 means trouble.

	Be less chatty unless --verbose.
	No more NODIR; always have version control available.
	Require environment variables to be nonempty to have effect.
	Add support for --dry-run, --output, --verbose.
	Invoke get_input_file first, before deciding among do_ed_script,
	plan_a, or plan_b.
	Clear ofp after closing it, to keep discipline that ofp is either
	0 or open, to avoid file descriptor leaks.  Conversely, rejfp doesn't
	need this trick since static analysis is enough to show when it
	needs to be closed.
	Don't allow file-creation patches to be applied to existing files.
	Misordered hunks are now not fatal errors; just go on to the next file.
	It's a fatal error to fall back on plan B when --output is given,
	since the moving hand has writ.
	Add support for binary files.
	Check for I/O errors.
	chmod output file ourselves, rather than letting move_file do it;
	this saves global state.

	return options and arguments in order.  '-b' no longer takes operand.
	-p's operand is no longer optional.  Add -i, -Y, -z.  Remove -S.
	(longopts): --suffix is now pared with -z, not -b.  --backup now
	means -b.  Add --input, --basename-prefix, --dry-run, --verbose.
	Remove --skip.  --strip's operand is now required.
	(option_help): New variable.  Use style of current coding standards.
	Change to match current option set.
	(usage): Use it.
	(get_some_switches): Get all switches, since `+' is defunct.
	New options -i, -Y, -z, --verbose, --dry-run.
	Option -S removed.
	-b now means backup (backup_type == simple), not simple_backup_suffix.
	-B now implies backup, and requires nonempty operand.
	-D no longer requires first char of argument to be an identifier.
	`-o -' is now disallowed (formerly output to regular file named "-").
	-p operand is now required.
	-v no longer needs to cleanup (no temp files can exist at that point).
	-V now implies backup.
	Set inname, patchname from file name arguments, if any;
	do not set filearg.  It's now an error if extra operands are given.

	(apply_hunk, copy_till): Return error flag, so that failure to apply
	out-of-order hunk is no longer fatal.

	for patching files not ending in newline.
	Cache ofp for speed.  Check for write errors.
	(OUTSIDE, IN_IFNDEF, IN_IFDEF, IN_ELSE): Now part of an enumerated type

	since condition is always true the first time through the loop.
	(init_output, init_reject): Arg is now const *.
	(copy_till, spew_output): Do not insert ``missing'' newlines;
	propagate them via new after_newline argument.
	(spew_output): Nothing to copy if last_frozen_line == input lines.
	Do not close (ofp) if it's null.
	(dump_line): Remove.
	(similar): Ignore presence or absence of trailing newlines.
	Check for only ' ' or '\t', not isspace (as per POSIX.2).
	(make_temp): Use tmpnam if mktemp is not available.
	(cleanup): New function.
	(fatal_exit): Use it.  Renamed from my_exit.
	Take signal to exit with, not exit status (which is now always 2).

	* pch.h, pch.c (pch_prefix_context, pch_suffix_context):
	New fns replacing pch_context.
	(another_hunk): Now yields int, not bool; -1 means out of memory.
	Now takes difftype as argument.
	(pch_write_line): Now returns boolean indicating whether we're after
	a newline just after the write, for supporting non-text files.
	* pch.c (isdigit): Remove; use ISDIGIT instead.
	(INITHUNKMAX): Moved here from common.h.
	(p_context): Removed.  We need to keep track of the pre- and post-
	context separately, in:
	(p_prefix_context, p_suffix_context): New variables.
	(bestguess): Remove.
	(open_patch_file): Arg is now char const *.
	Copy file a buffer at a time, not a char at a time, for speed.
	(grow_hunkmax): Now returns success indicator.
	(there_is_another_patch, skip_to, another_hunk, do_ed_script):
	Be less chatty unless --verbose.
	Avoid infinite loop if user input keeps yielding EOF.
	(intuit_diff_type): New returns enum diff, not int.
	Strip paths as they're being fetched.
	Set ok_to_create_file correctly even if patch is reversed.
	Set up file names correctly with unidiff output.
	Use algorithm specified by POSIX 1003.2b/D11 to deduce
	name of file to patch, with the exception of patches
	that can create files.
	(skip_to): Be verbose if !inname, since we're about to ask the
	user for a file name and the context will help the user choose.
	(another_hunk): Keep context as LINENUM, not int.
	If the replacement is missing, calculate its context correctly.
	Don't assume input ends in newline.
	Keep track of patch prefix context separately from suffix context;
	this fixes several bugs.
	Don't assume blank lines got chopped if the replacement is missing.
	Report poorly-formed hunks instead of aborting.
	Do not use strcpy on overlapping strings; it's not portable.
	Work even if lines are incomplete.
	Fix bugs associated with context-less context hunks,
	particularly when patching in reverse.
	(pget_line): Now takes just 1 arg; instead of second arg,
	just examine using_plan_a global.  Return -1 if we ran out
	of memory.
	(do_ed_script): Now takes output FILE * argument.
	Take name of editor from ED_PROGRAM instead of hardwiring /bin/ed.
	Don't bother unlinking TMPOUTNAME.
	Check for popen failure.
	Flush pipe to check for output errors.
	If ofp is nonzero, copy result to it, instead of trying to
	move the result.

	and read from /dev/tty, or if that cannot be opened, from
	stderr, stdout, stdin, whichever is first a tty.
	Print "EOF" when an EOF is read.  Do not echo input.
	(sigs): New array.
	(sigset_t, sigemptyset, sigmask, sigaddset, sigismember, SIG_BLOCK,
	SIG_UNBLOCK, SIG_SETMASK, sigprocmask, sigblock, sigsetmask):
	Define substitutes if not available.
	(initial_signal_mask, signals_to_block): New vars.
	(fatal_exit_handler): New function, if !HAVE_SIGACTION.
	(set_signals, ignore_signals): Use sigaction and sigprocmask style
	signal-handling if possible; it doesn't lose signals.
	(set_signals): Default SIGCHLD to work around SysV fork+wait bug.
	(mkdir): First arg is now const *.
	(makedirs): Handle multiple adjacent slashes correctly.
	(fetchname): Do not worry about whether the file exists
	(that is now the caller's responsibility).
	Treat a sequence of one or more slashes like one slash.
	Do not unstrip leading directories if they all exist and if

	(memcmp): Remove (now a macro in common.h).

	* version.c (copyright_string, free_software_msgid, authorship_msgid):
	New constants.
	(version): Use them.  Use program_name instead of hardwiring it.

	* inp.c (tibufsize): New variable; buffers grow as needed.
	(report_revision): New function.
	(plan_a): Do not search patch as a big string, since that fails
	if it contains null bytes.
	Prepend `./' to filenames starting with `-', for RCS and SCCS.
	If file does not match default RCS/SCCS version, go ahead and patch
	it anyway; warn about the problem but do not report a fatal error.
	(plan_b): Do not use a fixed buffer to read lines; read byte by byte
	instead, so that the lines can be arbitrarily long.  Do not search
	lines as strings, since they may contain null bytes.

	(open_patch_file, skip_to, another_hunk): The patch file may contain
	(another_hunk): The patch file may contain lines starting with '\',
	which means the preceding line lacked a trailing newline.
	(pgetline): Rename to pget_line.
	(get_line, incomplete_line, pch_write_line): New functions.
	(pch_line_len): Return size_t, not short; lines may be very long.

	Fixed a bug in both context and unified diff processing that would
	put a zero-context hunk in the wrong place (one line too soon).
	Fixed a minor problem with p_max in unified diffs where it would
	set p_max to hunkmax unnecessarily (the only adverse effect was to
	not supply empty lines at eof by assuming they were truncated).

	single-line hunks in unified diffs (with a single line number
	instead of a range).

	Wayne Davison.
