How to submit a patch

What is a patch?

A patch is a way that you can make changes to the libsmbios code and send just your changes to the libsmbios development team. The team can see the lines of code that you changed, so they don't need to hunt through the code to see what changed. You can also use the patch to apply the changes to the official code base.

You create a patch by downloading the source code for libsmbios and working on coding up your changes.
