Binary package “daemon” in ubuntu lucid
turns other processes 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.
