      7 Description from source:
      8     """
      9     A patch to have dmenu read stdin in a non blocking way, making it wait for input both from stdin and from X. This 
     10     way, you can continue feeding dmenu while you type. This patch is meant to be used along with the incremental patch, 
     11     so that you can use stdout to feed stdin.

     14 == YOU MUST ==
     15 (1). Place the patch file in /etc/portage/patches/x11-misc/dmenu/ and run 'emerge dmenu'
     16 
     17 == YOU PROBABLY SHOULD ==
     18 (1). This patch removes the '-f' option, so you will no longer be able to use that.
     19 
     20 == PATCH MODIFICATIONS ==
     21 (1). Modified chunk #2 of the dmenu.1 diff to reflect the Gentoo version's code
     22 (2). Modified chunks #8 and #13 of the dmenu.c diff to reflect the Gentoo version's code
     23 (3). Added a 'nodoc' patch version which strips out added documentation
     24 
     25 == INCOMPATIBILITIES ==
     26 THIS PATCH MAKES CHANGES TO DMENU'S BUILT-IN DOCUMENTATION, WHICH CAN CAUSE CONFLICTS WITH OTHER PATCHES!
     27 If you encounter such conflicts, try emerging with the 'nonblockingstdin-nodoc.patch' file instead. It is the
     28 same as the 'nonblockingstdin.patch' file except it makes no changes to the documentation.
