    saving process


    is it possible to save a process and then load it at some point, and it continues to flow.
    here's what i mean :
    Code:
    >sleep 10
    [1]+  Stopped                 sleep 10
    >ps
    PID TTY          TIME CMD
    5162 pts/3    00:00:00 su
    5165 pts/3    00:00:00 bash
    5206 pts/3    00:00:00 sleep
    5207 pts/3    00:00:00 ps
    
    // for example
    >save 5206 outfile
    >kill 5206
    
    // then later
    >load outfile
    and by process i mean all the memory it occupies, so for example if a game doesn't have a save feature you could cheat like this...
    i can guess that there's no such a thing, but what do you think:
    is this a handy feature?
    is it hard to make?
