swap-offset - program to calculate the offset of a swap file in a partition
This manual page documents briefly the swap-offset
The programs s2disk
can be used to save the state of
the whole system to a swap partition or file and power off or suspend your
system. After restarting your system it will be put back in the exact system
state you left it (this is sometimes called hibernation).
In the case of using a swap file you will have to specify the location of the
swap file's header as the offset from the beginning of the partition that
contains the swap file. The swap-offset
utility can be used to
determine this value.
For more information see the README file.
