What is daemon?

Daemon turns other process into daemons. There are many tasks that need to be performed to correctly set up a daemon process. This can be tedious. Daemon performs these tasks for other processes. This is useful for writing daemons in languages other than C, C++ or Perl (e.g. /bin/sh, Java).

If you want to write daemons in languages that can link against C functions (e.g. C, C++), see libslack which contains the core functionality of daemon.

Daemon is freely available under the GNU General Public License.

Features

For more information read the Documentation.

Supported Platforms

Currently, daemon is only known to compile and work on:

It is written in ISO C using POSIX almost exclusively except for some BSD functions that appear on most systems (e.g. sockets). So it shouldn't be difficult to get it working on other (recent) systems that support ISO C, POSIX and XPG4.
