Sharing Local Code with Tortoise SVN Patch

At times one might want to share local code with his/her team members instead of committing them. This can be done using the Tortoise SVN Patch feature.  A patch is a text file that contains the alterations that were made to a specific source file. It includes the lines that have been removed and the lines that have been added.
Developers can then create a patch and share this file with their team members. The team member can just do right click and select “Apply Patch” option on the same module folder on which “Create Patch” was done.  After selecting the patch file all the local code changes get applied.
