Confused? swap partitions huh!?
Authored by: Earl on Feb 08, '02 07:37:45AM

It's also important to stress that Darwin does not support swap partitions, only swapfiles. Also, Darwin's swapfiles are managed dynamically, so they can grow or shrink as needed - in about 80MB chunks.

The man pages might work for application level stuff, but for system's stuff, go to the Apple developer pages and the darwinfo site. As is often the case, the man pages aren't keeping up. (And I don't knock Apple for this. The heralded Linux - which I also use and like - is rife with "note this manpage is no longer being maintained...")
