The fork command creates a copy of an existing container.

Usage: turbo fork  <existing container> [<new container name>]

<options> available:
      --format=VALUE         Use the specified format for output. Supported values: json
      --images=VALUE         Use specified images for new container
      --wait-after-error     Leave process open after error
      --wait-after-exit      Leave process open after it exits

The `--images' flag replaces all images in the new container with the ones that are specified. Any images from the original container that are required in the new container would need to be specified again.
