NAME
       swap - swap device

DESCRIPTION
       This file refers to the swap device in use by the system.  It should be linked to the spe-
       cial file for the disk or disk partition on which the system swaps.  It is  used  by  pro-
       grams  that  wish  to read from the swap device without knowing its real name.  The script
       /dev/MAKEDEV.local normally is edited by the system builder to set /dev/swap up correctly.

FILES
       /dev/swap
       /dev/MAKEDEV	   script to create special files
       /dev/MAKEDEV.local  script to localize special files
