Linux "faked" Command Line Options and Examples
daemon that remembers fake ownership/permissions of files manipulated by fakeroot processes.

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..

Be warned, though: although I've written quite a few much larger (and smaller) programs, I've never written anythingthat 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 ver‐sion that could be used to build itself.COPYINGfakeroot is distributed under the GNU General Public License.
