Recommended Posts

I have many changes on my Source code, but how do I create a patch?

Where can help me to create a howto to create a Patch?

With TortoiseSVN its very easy, but not with GIT :-(

See that bar under the "MaNGOS" logo? "Search" is in the middle.

git format-patch --stdout > my_changes.patch

thx, but this not work ....

Patch file have 0 byte :-(

Do you have those changes in your dirty working tree? Or in a commit? If you made a commit, you need to "diff" your current state and the state before your commit:

git format-patch -1 --stdout > my_file.patch

See it's manpage for help...

git format-patch --help

no i have many changes in the files and i have added new *.cpp files and the Problem is the new cpp files not into my Patch file.

Try this before creating the patch:

git add .
git commit -a -m "my commit"

The first command will add the new files you added.

The second command will commit all your changes.

Now you can create the patch.

I have added a new test.cpp and used your commands and create a Patchfile, but this have 0 byte.

-rw-r--r-- 1 xxx xxx 0 2008-10-25 05:11 my_changes.patch

-rw-r--r-- 1 xxx xxx 0 2008-10-25 05:11 my_file.patch

Did you use freghar's first command (the one with -1) this time ?
