NAME
       uml_moo -- merge a COW file with its backing file

SYNOPSIS
       uml_moo [COW file]  [new_backing_file]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page documents briefly the uml_moo command.

       This  manual  page  was  written  for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
       because the original program does not have a manual page.  Instead,  it
       has documentation in HTML format; see below.

       uml_moo is a program to merge a COW (copy-on-write) file with its back-
       ing file, and write the result to a new backing file.  This can be used
       periodically  to  update  the backing file with the changes made in the
       COW file.

       NOTE: you can save a lot of disk space using COW files.  When  checking
       the  size of the COW file in order to see the gobs of space that you're
       saving, make sure you use 'ls -ls' to see the actual  disk  consumption
       rather  than  the  length  of  the file. The COW file is sparse, so the
       length will be very different from the disk usage.
