Needed: Scary patch tool

Hey folk.

I have a version of some code which works, and a version which doesn't.
It's not my code, so I don't fully understand it. My plan is therefore to
do a diff between the two versions, and produce a patch.

I would then like some what of applying each individual change in the
patch separately -- so that I can change a line at a time and see which
one introduced the breakage.

Ham fisted I know, but I'm out of ideas...

Any suggestions on how to do this?


PS: The code is the linux APM code. It turns out APM worked on my X21 for
2.4.17, but not 2.4.18. The next step is to try to find out why...
