creatbyproc.d - snoop creat()s by process name. Uses DTrace.
creatbyproc.d is a DTrace OneLiner to print file creations as it occurs,
including the name of the process calling the open.
This matches file creates from the creat() system call; not all file
creation occurs in this way, sometimes it is through open() with a
O_CREAT flag, this script will not monitor that activity.
Docs/oneliners.txt and Docs/Examples/oneliners_examples.txt in the
DTraceToolkit contain this as a oneliner that can be cut-n-paste to run.
Since this uses DTrace, only users with root privileges can run this

See the DTraceToolkit for further documentation under the Docs directory.

descriptions explaining the output.
creatbyproc.d will run forever until Ctrl-C is hit.
