PatchMaker is a DOS program that creates 'patch programs' for files.
Supply PatchMaker with an original and a patched file and it will create a
simple patch program for you.
The usage is very simple, when you run the progam it will display:
usage: original patched textfile outfile
original: the unmodified original file
patched: is the patched file
textfile: user supplied textfile
outfile: patch program outfile
> pm original.exe patched.exe mytext.txt mypatch.com
* Files must be equal in size.
