Patch Maker screenshotThe life of a software product is commonly marked by the release of various versions. One version is different from the previous one by a small number of adjustments. Some parts of code in the executable files are distinct, new files may be added, some even eliminated. What the author of the software usually does is offer an entire new version of the files either as a new reinstallable product or just the customized files, compressed into an installer.

The above method is very wasteful though. For example, if a file of 1 mb has just 10 kb altered inside, then why generate an update that needs the full 1 megabyte? It would more useful if just the altered data was saved. This is the meaning of Patch Maker, as it saves a large amount of bytes by saving just the differences among files and even compressing this data.

Advantages of using Patch Maker:

- Very tiny update patches, separate of the size and number of files of the initial installation
- As most of the information is not saved in the update patch, it is impossible to steal your program unless you already own a previous versions of the program

Pros

  • Saves a programmer lots of time.
  • Very easy to use.
