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


       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 ownership etc  of
       that file, and then report it.


              Print debugging information on stderr.

              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

       --save-file  save-file
              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 root:root.

       --port  tcp-port
              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 version that could be used
       to build itself.
