NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

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

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key msg-key]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

	      Print debugging information on stderr.

	      don't fork into the background.

       --cleanup  number
	      cleanup the semafores.

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

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

COPYING    [Toc]    [Back]

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