NAME
       faked  - daemon that remembers fake ownership/permissions of files manipulated by fakeroot
       processes.

SYNOPSIS
       faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key  msg-key]  [--load]  [--save-file  save-
       file] [--port TCP-port]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       --debug
	      Print debugging information on stderr.

       --foreground
	      Don't fork into the background.

       --cleanup  number
	      Cleanup the semaphores.

       --key  key-number
	      Don't allocate a new communication channel, but use channel specified by	key.  (If
	      the specified channel doesn't exist, it's created).

       --save-file  save-file
	      Save the environment to save-file on exit.

       --load Load a previously saved environment from the standard input.

       --unknown-is-real
	      Use  real  ownership  of	previously-unknown  files  instead  of	setting  them  to
	      root:root.

       --port  tcp-port
	      Use TCP port tcp-port.

BUGS
       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.

COPYING
       fakeroot is distributed under the GNU General Public License.  (GPL 2.0 or greater).
