Create patches on Windows

A variety of programs on Windows is able to generate patches. The command line utility diff can run on Windows either natively (Unxutils) or via an emulation layer (Cygwin).

If you require or fancy a graphical interface, you can use for example TortoiseSVN or the IDE Eclipse. These programs require that you keep the code you are working on under version control with Subversion.

Note: diff on Windows generates files containing CRLF line-endings. To enable the use of these patches on a UNIX system, convert to LF line-endings with a text editor or a dos2unix utility.
