Usually copy and paste and non-Unix operating systems are a recipe for
disaster with a patch file. It appears, however, that your patch applied.
The only way to be sure is to open Page.pm in a text editor and look at
the modified lines. And make sure to restart Interchange so the change
takes effect. Of course you can simply try one of the URLs with a variable
and make sure it doesn't work on your catalog.
