9long_description \
10    forkbomb is tool for stress testing. It can create many processes \
11    using fork(), eats all available memory using realloc() and \
12    accesses this memory. It has different switches for fine-tuning \
13    operation. While classic fork() bomb is good only for fun, \
14    running multiple memory-eaters can be useful for determining \
15    maximum memory which can be given to servers (bind or squid) \
16    without taking machine down. You can test different operation \
17    systems with this tool and see how they are handling the load.
