============================== F E A T U R E S ==============================

Spatch is a tool, that allows you to update an old version of any software
to a better one. All you need is a Spatch executable program and a patch
file (#?.pch) created by the developper of the updated software.

- standard DOS template (space after option incompatibility)
- message chunk support using iffparse
- no window in shell mode anymore
- different return code

============================ R E Q U I R E M E N T ==========================

Spatch tested and apparently works on the following configurations:

- IcarOS i386               (Kickstart 51.51, Workbench 40.0, AROS ABIv0)
- AROS One i386             (Kickstart 51.51, Workbench 40.0, AROS ABIv0)

Unfortunately I couldn't find suitable sources and patches to be completely
sure. Scompare which creates patches doesn't exist in the open source, and
there is a potential problem with Little-endian for i386, x86_64 CPU here.

================================= U S A G E =================================

spatch [-o=<output_file> -p=<patch_file>] <oldfile>

The following options are valid for spatch.

-o  - specify the name of the output file. If -o is not used, the name
      of the output file will be the same as the input file with a
	  suffix of .new appended.
-p  - specify the name of the patchfile. If -p is not used, the name
      of the patchfile will be the oldfile name with a suffix of .pch

In the following example, the patch mypatch will be read, and compared
with the file oldfile. Changes will be applied, producing the new file,
