faked - daemon that remembers `fake' ownership/permissions of files
manipulated by fakeroot processes.
faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key msg-key]
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' ownership etc
of that file, and then report it.
Print debugging information on stderr.
don't fork into the background.
cleanup the semafores.
Don't allocate a new communication channel, but use chanel specified
by key. (If the specified chanel doesn't exist, it's created).
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 version that could be used
to build itself.
