Patches in build visit
Here is an example of how to add a patch to build_visit.
 Create the Patch
untar -xzvf ThirdpartyLib.tar.gz mv ThirdpartyLib ThirdpartyLib.orig untar -xzvf ThirdpartyLib.tar.gz # make changes in ThirdpartyLib/ diff -c ThirdpartyLib.orig/ ThirdpartyLib/ # copy diff output text
 Add the Patch to build_visit
Add a function to apply the patch, the meat of the function will contain:
patch -p0 << \EOF ... paste diff output text ... EOF
Call the function with the source directory as a sub directory in current working directory (This case works with -p0)
