.SH NAME
faked \- daemon that remembers fake ownership/permissions of files
manipulated by fakeroot processes.
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B faked
.B [\-\-debug] [\-\-foreground] [\-\-cleanup] [\-\-key
.IB msg-key ] 
.B [\-\-load] [\-\-save-file
.IB save-file ]
.B [\-\-port
.IB TCP-port ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
If a fakeroot process wants to change the ownership of a file, then
.B 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.

.SH OPTIONS
.TP
.B \-\-debug
Print debugging information on stderr.
.TP
.BI \-\-foreground
Don't fork into the background.
.TP
.B \-\-cleanup \ number
Cleanup the semaphores.
.TP
.B \-\-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 created).
.TP
.B \-\-save\-file \ save-file
Save the environment to save-file on exit.
.TP
.B \-\-load
Load a previously saved environment from the standard input.
.TP
.B \-\-unknown\-is\-real
Use real ownership of previously-unknown files instead of setting them to
root:root.
.TP
.B \-\-port \ tcp-port
Use TCP port tcp-port.

.SH BUGS
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
.BR fakeroot ,
had as many bugs as
.BR fakeroot ,
and still was as usable as, say, 
.BR fakeroot
version 0.0_3, the first version that could be used to build itself.
