Mmmh, you should really go for a book with an introduction to Unix and its
concepts. The file redirection and pipes are the very basic concepts of Unix.

A pipe is a special redirections that takes the output of a command and
sends it to the input of another one; it is represented by '|' on the shell:

cat file.diff | patch -p1

will send the output of 'cat file.diff' (the file file.diff itself) to
the input of the command 'patch -p1'.

KS> Which two files, and what do I change?

look at the lines beginning with --- and +++ they tell the names.
the @ lines tell the line numbers, and the lines beginning with '-' are
lines to delete, and the ones beginning with '+' lines to add.

the file that would be modified is 'EMPTY.po'; near the 6th line (7 lines
are sgowed in the diff output); and you can see the line
