You really do know how to get off track and squirm out from under the
pressure when you've been caught off-gaurd with a real answer to the
original question you asked.

So, if we take this squirming full circle then what better tools do you
and your colleagues use to apply changes in the form of diff output to

If you really can't figure out the difference between knowing which tool
in the toolbox is best to use for a given situation, and not even
knowing what tools are in the toolbox in the first place, then you
really should think twice before perpetuating debates such as these with
your ill-informed ideas.
