Oh, and I will just add: This is fric'n *COOL* feature! Just
for yuchs, load up the module and start a cat /usr/share/dict/words
going, then ^E it. Then ^C it and 'checkpt -r cat.ckpt' to restart
the one as of your checkpoint. That is soooo cool.
It works with tar to, at least a simple 'tar cf'. It won't work with
tar z since that uses a pipe to gzip internally.
It doesn't work with the 'primes' program. e.g. 'primes 1'. I don't know
why yet. And there are still issues... things don't always restore
properly. Anyone willing to help, it's all in the tree now and easy
to play with.
