peekfd - peek at file descriptors of running processes
attaches to a running process and intercepts all reads
and writes to file descriptors. You can specify the
desired file descriptor numbers or dump all of them.
Do no post-processing on the bytes being read or written.
Do not display headers indicating the source of the bytes dumped.
Also dump the requested file descriptor activity in any new child processes that are created.
Remove duplicate read/writes from the output. If you're looking at a tty with echo, you might want this.
Display a version string.
Display a help message.
Not used but useful for the user to look at to get good file descriptor numbers.
The following diagnostics may be issued on stderr:
Error attaching to pid ...
An unknown error occured while attempted to attach to a process.. you may need to be root.
Probably lots. Don't be surprised if the process you are monitoring dies.
