Re: New versions of bzip2 and patch?

I only removed a stupid (imho) usage of environment-variables from patch
which caused it to convert textfiles in binmounts to cr/lf files.
automode.o sounds as if it were useable for patch but right now I think
it should be kept as it is because it has prooven to work 'as is'.

Hmm... thinking about it agauin, what about this theory:

If I understand automode correctly a file on a textmount would be
converted to a 'unix'-style file internally and if saved in binmode
there would be no more cr/lf in the file; theory right ???
