      bspatch oldfile newfile patchfile


      The bspatch utility generates newfile from oldfile and patchfile where
      patchfile is a binary patch built by bsdiff(1).
      The bspatch utility uses memory equal to the size of oldfile plus the
      size of newfile, but can tolerate a very small working set without a dra‐
      matic loss of performance.
