How to Install bsdiff in Ubuntu 18.04

Install bsdiff by entering the following commands in the terminal:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install bsdiff


generate/apply a patch between two binary files

bsdiff and bspatch are tools for building and applying patches to binary files. By using suffix sorting (specifically, Larsson and Sadakane's qsufsort) and taking advantage of how executable files change, bsdiff routinely produces binary patches 50-80% smaller than those produced by Xdelta, and 15% smaller than those produced by .RTPatch (a commercial patch tool).
