SVR4 can do this, comes in handy. When you see a piggy program about to
run out of resources you suspend it, create another paging file,
add the file to paging, resume the program and when it ends, delete
the paging file. The OS migrates all the pages to other paging
areas and then releases the file in question. VERY handy!
