man baby

I thought this was pretty clever, and I just had to share the fun lol

BABY(1) 										  BABY(1)

NAME
       baby -- create new process from two parents

SYNOPSIS
       baby -sex [m|f] [-name name]

DESCRIPTION
       baby  is  initiated  when one parent process polls another server process through a socket
       connection in the BSD version or through pipes in the System V implementation.  baby  runs
       at  low	priority  for  approximately  forty weeks and then terminates with a heavy system
       load.  Most systems require constant monitoring when baby reaches its final stages of exe-
       cution.

       Older  implementations  of baby did not require both initiating processes to be present at
       the time of completion.	In those versions the initiating process which	was  not  present
       was  awakened  and  notified of the results upon completion.  It has since been determined
       that the presence of both parent processes result in a generally lower system load at com-
       pletion,  and thus current versions of baby expect both parent processes to be active dur-
       ing the final stages.

       Successful completion of baby results in the creation and naming of a new process.  Parent
       processes then broadcast messages to all other processes, local and remote, informing them
       of their new status.

OPTIONS
       -sex   define the gender of the created process

       -name  assign the name name to the new process

EXAMPLES
	      baby -sex f -name Jacqueline

       completed successfully on July 9, 1992 at 9:11pm.  Jacqueline's vital statistics: 8 pounds
       3  oz,  20  inches,  long  dark hair.  The parent process, Kim Dunbar, is reportedly doing
       fine.

SEE ALSO
       cigar(6), dump(5), cry(3).

BUGS
       Despite its complexity, baby only knows one signal, SIGCHLD, (or SIGCLD in  the	System	V
       implementation),  which	it uses to contact the parent processes.  One or both parent pro-
       cesses must then inspect the baby process to determine the cause of the signal.

       The sleep(1) command may not work as expected on  either  parent  process  for  some  time
       afterward, as each new instance of baby sends intermittent signals to the parent processes
       which must be handled by the parents immediately.

       A baby process will frequently dump core, requiring either or  both  parent  processes  to
       clean up after it.

       Despite the reams of available documentation on invoking and maintaining baby, most parent
       processes are overwhelmed.

Re: man baby

That's actually pretty good. Now all someone needs to do is come up with a command called "bathwater"

Re: man baby

you can also find them online...
for example - http://manned.org/bosskill.8

I think I seen bug reports mentioning license issues so I suspect they will disappear from debian unless they can be corrected.

As far as not being available in jessie....freeze is the time that it is acceptable to grab things from unstable as for the most part this weeks unstable is next weeks testing...
