What command to create a patch?

Do you want them generated by

‘diff’

or

‘diff -c’

?

diff -u I believe.

I’m not Jesse, but standard practice is “diff -u” if you have a diff
that supports it, and “diff -c” if you don’t – but in that case, you
should probably think about installing GNU diff if you plan on
contributing patches regularly. :slight_smile:
