faked - daemon that remembers fake ownership/permissions of files manipulated by fakeroot
faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key msg-key] [--load] [--save-file save-
file] [--port TCP-port]
If a fakeroot process wants to change the ownership of a file, then faked is the process
that remembers that new owner. If later the same fakeroot process does a stat() for that
filename, then the libfakeroot wrapped stat() call will first ask faked for the fake own-
ership etc of that file, and then report it.
Print debugging information on stderr.
Don't fork into the background.
Cleanup the semaphores.
Don't allocate a new communication channel, but use channel specified by key. (If
the specified channel doesn't exist, it's created).
Save the environment to save-file on exit.
--load Load a previously saved environment from the standard input.
Use real ownership of previously-unknown files instead of setting them to
Use TCP port tcp-port.
None so far. Be warned, though: although I've written quite a few much larger (and
smaller) programs, I've never written anything that was as tiny as fakeroot, had as many
bugs as fakeroot, and still was as usable as, say, fakeroot version 0.0_3, the first ver-
sion that could be used to build itself.
