  • You may want to look at perlpatch2svn (if you have large enough disks). By importing all the APC into a subversion repository, you can use the svn facility commands to have the list of changes that affected a file, to revert some particular patch by number (merge in reverse), to generate diffs... (I don't use it very much anymore, becoming more and more familiar with p4.)
    • Re:Repository (Score:2, Informative)

      Sounds interesting but scary because I need to install subversion locally. You aren't probably aware of how silly I look when I sit before some revision control system trying to squeeze the desired information out of it. I am not very talented with those kind of things.

      Right now I am getting most of the stuff I want to know from the perlbrowse repository [activestate.com]. After you improved some bits of it some while ago it's really useful and (most importantly in my case;-) easy to use.
