I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet.

If you use Bazaar, you might be interested in my book Bazaar Version Control. If you work a lot in the shell, you might be interested in my Time-Saving Tricks on the Command Line.

I make free Android apps like Programming Quiz, websites like bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff.

You can find me on Twitter as @janosgyerik or on my blog.

comment How to create a patch file for new source code
@AmirAfghani I improved my answer. See my last word of caution, about what happens when using such patch file. And maybe unaccept the answer for a while, maybe others will answer it better. You can accept a few days later if it still makes sense.

comment Is there a Linux deep diff tool that also compares file attributes?
I don't know. If not, as a workaround, perhaps you could print the files + attributes you're interested in and diff the text output: diff <(find ...) <(find ...)

comment How do I decrypt a message using openssl's CLI?
Can you ask for a checksum of the file? That way you could confirm if your file is corrupted or not.

@user50849 I updated my answer thought it looks like you're already doing that... After you decode from base64, what does the file command tell you? Is the file binary?
