Summary     : Run Perl program as a daemon process
Description :
This is version 0.14 of Proc::Daemon

This module contains the routine Init which can be called by a Perl
program to initialize itself as a daemon. A daemon is a process that
runs in the background with no controlling terminal. Generally servers
(like FTP and HTTP servers) run as daemon processes.

Update Information:

Revision history for Perl module Proc::Daemon.

0.14  Fri Jun 03 2011
* The filename memory is now a part of the object (not a package variable any more). This was a bug.
* Since <fork> is not performed on Windows OS as on Linux, I removed the <eval> and <warn> from 0.13 and add an INFO to the documentation.
* Updated the documentation.

0.13  Wed Jun 01 2011
* Add ability to define the user identifier for the daemon if you want to run it under other user then the parent (request from Holger Gläss).
* Add <eval> and <warn> for OS not supporting POSIX::setsid (e.g. Windows).
* Updated the documentation.

0.12  Tue Mai 24 2011
* Init() did not close all filehandles reliably in some cases. Thanks again to Rob Brown for reporting.
* Text improvement in the documentation.

0.11  Mon Mai 23 2011
* Init() didn't close all filehandles reliably (see also bug report at http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=72526). Thanks to Rob Brown for reporting and offering a patch.
* Attributes 'dont_close_fh' AND 'dont_close_fd' added so we can define file handles and descriptors that must be preserved from the parent into the child (daemon).
* Updated the documentation.
* In some environment it is not allowed to open anonymous files. In this case now a 'pid_file' must be defined. Thanks to Holger Gläss for reporting.

0.10  Fri Apr 01 2011
* Improvement how Init() determines whether it was passed a blessed object
