BLCR (Berkeley Lab Checkpoint/Restart) allows programs running on
Linux to be "checkpointed" (written entirely to a file), and then
later "restarted".
BLCR can checkpoint both single- and multithreaded (pthreads)
programs linked with the NPTL implementation of pthreads. BLCR is
also able to save and restore groups of related processes together
with the pipes that connect them.
This package contains utilities needed to launch and restart
unmodified processes with checkpointing support.
