Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-266) Add ability to restrict account creation
Date Tue, 16 Dec 2008 21:02:42 GMT
If you use command line, take a look at the man page for patch. You  
can remove leading directories from a patch file with the -px option.

       -pnum  or  --strip=num
           Strip the smallest prefix containing num leading slashes  
from each file name found in the patch file.   A
           sequence  of  one  or  more  adjacent slashes is counted as  
a single slash.  This controls how file names
           found in the patch file are treated, in case you keep your  
files in a different directory than the person
           who sent out the patch.  For example, supposing the file  
name in the patch file was


           setting -p0 gives the entire file name unmodified, -p1 gives


           without the leading slash, -p4 gives


           and  not  specifying -p at all just gives you blurfl.c.   
Whatever you end up with is looked for either in
           the current directory, or the directory specified by the -d  

Hope this helps,
