RTFM.  GNU patch does not accept the patch file as an argument.  It
accepts input from stdin.  So, the solution to your problem is to run
patch as, "patch < filename," replacing filename with the filename,
of course.  The "<" is the redirection symbol, fairly universal in
meaning (sending the following file to the standard input stream, as
though it were typed).
