Upon being brought before the court or judge, the debtor may enter into an undertaking
in such sum as the court or officer shall prescribe, with one or more sureties, that
the debtor will attend from time to time for examination before the court or judge
as shall be directed, and will not, in the meantime, dispose of the debtor's property,
or any part thereof; in default whereof the debtor shall continue under arrest, and
may be committed to jail for safekeeping until the examination shall be concluded.
