A rewrite of the original Debian's start-stop-daemon Perl script in C (faster - it is executed many times during system startup). Written by Marek Michalkiewicz <email@example.com>, public domain. Based conceptually on start-stop-daemon.pl, by Ian Jackson <firstname.lastname@example.org>. May be used and distributed freely for any purpose. Changes by Christian Schwarz <email@example.com>, to make output conform to the Debian Console Message Standard, also placed in public domain. Minor changes by Klee Dienes <firstname.lastname@example.org>, also placed in the Public Domain. Changes by Ben Collins <email@example.com>, added --chuid, --background and --make-pidfile options, placed in public domain aswell. Port to OpenBSD by Sontri Tomo Huynh <firstname.lastname@example.org> and Andreas Schuldei <email@example.com> Changes by Ian Jackson: added --retry (and associated rearrangements). Modified for Gentoo rc-scripts by Donny Davies <firstname.lastname@example.org>: I removed the BSD/Hurd/OtherOS stuff, added #include <stddef.h> and stuck in a #define VERSION "1.9.18". Now it compiles without the whole automake/config.h dance.
