faked [--debug] [--foreground] [--cleanup] [--key
msg-key] [--load] [--save-file save-file]
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
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.
