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 :-)"

why not using the free Archive::Zip Module from CPAN? I don't know for sure but I think it should be cross platform so porting Patch Maker should be much easier :)
