Hello,i came across the following problem:wishing to set up a backup  
scheme for my music mp3 directory,i made a copy of it to a separate  
partition with dd ,mounted it and then ran diff when the original   
received a new addition.I intended then to put the patch command in cron  
,and i'd then have automatic backup .But patch always returns 'only  
garbage found in diffout file '.I suspect that is because diff only works  
for text,is that right?Thanks for any answers,michael
