  Back on 30 Dec 1999, Eric Mitchell modified the SDTS DEM faq. I've been
trying to build the import filters as an alternative to r.in.gdal and the
non-working (for me) r.proj. But, I'm stuck here with a bug, too.

  In Appendix A is a large patch file to force the source code into
uppercase file names. I printed the FAQ to a postscript file, then carefully
formatted the appendix to match the printed copy. However, it's failing on
line 56 (dem2sur) because it cannot figure out which file on which to act. I
don't know how to write the diff files used by patch so I cannot debug the

  I could tar the whole directory (source files, patch file, Makefile) and
ship it to someone who knows how to interpret the error message and fix the

Help greatly appreciated,
