2======

4This package contains five little utilities that use the proc FS:
5
6  fuser     identifies processes using files or sockets (similar to Sun's
7	    or SGI's fuser)
8  killall   kills processes by name, e.g. killall -HUP named
9  pstree    shows the currently running processes as a tree
10  peekfd    shows the data travelling over a file descriptor
11
12They should work with most recent kernels. Man pages are included.

16src/loop.h was stolen from util-linux package which in turn stole it from
17the Linux kernel.

19fuser on network fs
20-------------------
21On network filesystems, fuser can hang because its trying to stat files
22that may go away.  If you use the --with-timeout-stat option during
23the configure step then fuser will fork a process to run stat. This means
24fuser doesn't hang, but it is much slower.

26Translations
27------------
28My thanks for the various translators who have cheerfully given me the po
29files to make psmisc speak different languages.  If your language is not
30supported then let me know, all it takes is translating one file in 
31a certain manner.

33Icons
34-----
35The pstree icons were drawn by Tatlin at Coresis who has given permission
36for them to be used for psmisc.
