Abstract

A method is disclosed for automatically generating a 'patch' from slightly differing object code modules and then applying it to one of them to convert it to the other. This permits maintaining the source and object code of both versions separately, yet the load data set need contain only one module and the small patch instead of two full modules. (Image Omitted)
