Subject Re: applying patch in Eclipse to get SpanHighlighter functionality
Date Wed, 05 Mar 2008 18:30:44 GMT
Thanks Mark-
I'm very much a newbie in all this patching stuff, but I don't think I'm 
using anything other than built-in Eclipse functionality using team->apply 
patch. And it's clearly not working well.

I took a look at TortoiseSVN but I think it's way overkill for me-- oh 
well; maybe I'll just wait until it makes it into a release :)
