The hdaemonize package

[Tags: bsd3, library]

Provides two functions that help writing better UNIX daemons, daemonize and serviced: daemonize does what a daemon should do (forking and closing descriptors), while serviced does that and more (syslog interface, PID file writing, start-stop-restart command line handling, dropping privileges).
