DO NOT USE Swap Cop!!! - NO LONGER SUPPORTED!!
Authored by: EatingPie on Nov 13, '03 11:23:52PM

I looked at the Swap Cop perl script and StartupItems. Interestingly, the author suggested his implementation as a change to Darwin's core, but it never was considered. The discussion of this can be found at the following URL:

http://www.opendarwin.org/pipermail/hackers/2002-August/000247.html

Swap Cop overrides the /etc/rc method entirely, but it MAY NOT WORK if your selected Swap volume isn't properly mounted.

AND after the above referenced discussion, the AUTHOR NO LONGER SUPPORTS SWAP COP!!!

This has danger written all over it!! Sure it may work in situation-normal, but in stress testing.... well go ahead and live dangerously!!
