New Patch Maker Available

Currently, it only works on Linux, even though setting up a build is easiest on that platform - the plan is to shake the bugs out there and also to get help porting it to Windows and Mac, where building is a lot harder.

The web page is up, and I'm looking for lots of good feedback. Please, try it out and let me know what you think. And if you are a Perl hacker on Windows or Mac, I'd also like to hear from you :-)"

I think there is something wrong with the way Mozilla handles the "Modern" theme. When I used that theme, Mozilla crashed every day, and caused my entire computer to crash with it. Since I started using the "Classic" theme, Mozilla has only crashed when I tried the "view page source" thing. It did not crash the entire computer those times.
