Geoffrey Mess write in his e-mail message of 30-Sep-92:
Thanks; I've now used patch-2.0.12u3 successfully; the trouble was
simply that in the doc directory I had a single file docr1.dvi and
had thrown away the tex files for the individual chapters. As I'm
using gapexe.next, I told patch to skip the changes on the source
Is the source code for gapexe.next available ?
It would seem that
to patch the source, one would need to do apply the upgrades to the
source code src3r1 and then make whatever changes were made in order
to produce the source code for gapexe.next, and then recompile.
Perhaps the simplest thing is to wait for Gap 3.2 ?
PS. There aren't that many important changes in the kernel anyhow. Most
changes to the kernel were made to make it possible to compile it on the
RS/6000 and with GNU CC, and those are clearly unimportant to you. The
important upgrades are in the library.
