PROGRAM:

NAME


cow-shell - Start a copy-on-write session and invoke a shell.

SYNOPSIS


cow-shell [commandline]

DESCRIPTION


cow-shell Executes specified command with cowdancer or a shell if no command-line option
is given.

Inside the cowdancer session, files under the current directory are protected in a way so
that a write operation to an i-node which existed at the point of running cow-shell is not
modified.

Useful for managing hard-linked source-trees and scratch-filesystems.

EXAMPLES


cp -al cowdancer/ cowdancer.new && cd cowdancer.new && cow-shell
Create a hardlinked tree, and cd into the newly created tree. After invoking cow-
shell inside that tree, a write operation against a file that is hardlinked with
the original tree will be copied to a new file before write.

cp -al cowdancer/ cowdancer.new && cd cowdancer.new && cow-shell debuild
Tries to run dpkg-buildpackage on the new tree, to avoid damage to the original
tree.

Configure debuild to ignore .ilist files, through -i or -I option.

Use cow-shell online using onworks.net services
