If there are upper and lower c case fields, the upper case are first and then the lower case, like c AaBbCc not like ABCabc. c The meta data ends with a line of 48 "-"'s and is followed by an empty line. c The next line is either another empty line, in which case there are no diffs, c or a non-empty line, in which case there is a single block of diffs. c A block of diffs is a contiguous sequence of lines with no blank lines; if c there were blank lines in the diffs, they have been escaped with a "\". c c After the diffs there is another blank line and then the pattern either c repeats or it ends with a "# Patch checksum=246901c0" line. c K 13264 O -rw-rw-r-- P ChangeSet
