Divide a patch or diff file into pieces. The split can made by file or by hunk basis. This makes is possible to separate changes that might not be desireable or assemble the patch into more coherent set of changes. The hunk option opens up possibility to compare similar patches hunk-by-hunk using tool like interdiff(1) from patchutils package. Operating on hunk level also gives more control, smilar to Git, to selectively shelve in changes e.g. to Version Control repository.
