Then you have confirmed that your point is irrelevant, just as I said it was.

I have no problem with the fact you consider 'patch' to be useless for
your needs.  I do have a very major problem with the fact that you don't
have any alternative that's better for your needs.  This is clearly why
you've had so much problems with file renames.  Clearly you should be
using 'patch' (or desparately trying to find something equally capable)
because it solves problems you've apparently left un-solved and which
you've continually whined and moaned about in this forum for literally
years now.
