how to use the patch command?

I have one HP server with HP unix 11.31 installed.

I want to update the software for some software error by the patch commnad.

 

 

The *.diff is supplied by the software developer.

I run the diff file by the command:

patch -p1 < wx*.diff

 

but the error occur:

I can't seem to find a patch in there anywhere

 

The file supplier insist the diff file is OK. I have no idea how to fix this issue.

If is it possible the command error?

Was a GNU tool used to make that patch?

If so, you probably have to download the GNU patch:
