Introduction

In computing, a patch is a software update meant to fix problems with a computer program. This can range from fixing bugs to replacing graphics to improving the usability or performance of a previous version. The term probably originates from the Unix patch command by Larry Wall. Though patches are meant to fix problems, sometimes patches introduce new ones.

After bringing in the patch the program has to be recompiled.
