       s2disk - program to calculate the offset of a swap file in a partition


       swap-offset [<swap_file>]


       This manual page documents briefly the swap-offset.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       The programs s2disk and s2both can be used to save  the  state  of  the
       whole  system to a swap partition or file and power off or suspend your
       system.  After restarting your system it will be put back in the  exact
       system state you left it (this is sometimes called hibernation).

       In  the case of using a swap file you will have to specify the location
       of the swap file's header as the  offset  from  the  beginning  of  the
       partition  that contains the swap file.  The swap-offset utility can be
       used to determine this value.
