That's interesting. Maybe there's a new TNEF version out there that the
module doesn't support properly. Has anyone checked the Changelog of the
Convert::TNEF module? Am I a long way from the most recent version?
As for applying a patch:
Say for example that the patch is stored in /tmp/tnef.patch, then do
patch -p0 < /tmp/tnef.patch
It should say that it has successfully applied the hunks of the patch.
