I've just created what I think is a daemon, however, I am not sure how it
actually works. Here is what I have done.
I put an executable shell script in my /usr/pkg/sbin. I also made a
myfiled and put it in /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d directory. Since, I would like to
run the daemon using a PID file, I captured a PID of a session running in
background and put it in /var/run/ directory. Thus, myfiled looks like
# PROVIDE: myfiled
# REQUIRE: DAEMON
# BEFORE: LOGIN
Am I doing this right? And if I am doing it right, how can I put this to
work? I am not quite sure how to start a daemon or stop it. I tried
something like /usr/pkg/etc/rc.d beacond start ... but didnt work.
Any help would be greatly appreicated, and also any suggestions to online
documentations on dealing with daemon would be great!
thanks a lot.
