This init.d script exists so one does not need to have a fixed size swap partition. Instead install without swap partition and then run this, with file size (re-)computed automatically to fit the current RAM size.

By default (and hence on installation) it creates swapfile twice as big as the present RAM amount with an upper limit of 2 GB.

I found it a great tool if you forget to add a swapfile to your install. I was using Paint Shop in Wine and was wondering why it was running weird no swapfile, I forget to add one when I install LMDE been about a week and justr noted it. lol
