This is not a daemon:
while (1) { print "Enter a number: "; $Number = <STDIN>; chomp($Number); print "You entered - $Number.\n"; }
yet you would have me believe it is.

When I said daemon, I meant having true daemon characteristics, not kinda sorta daemon-like. Fork and exit, setsid, chdir /, close or redirect STDIN, STDOUT, STDERR. Here's the example from Matt Sergeants' talk:

Daemonizing POE

  • We often write daemons with POE (network daemons, cron daemons, etc
  • But POE doesn't "background" automatically, so we need to write that:
use POE; use POSIX; $|++; sub become_daemon { my $child = fork; die "Can't fork: $!" unless defined($child); exit(0) if $child; # parent dies; POSIX::setsid(); # become session leader open(STDIN,"</dev/null"); open(STDOUT,">/dev/null"); open(STDERR, '>&STDOUT'); umask(0); # forget file mode creation mask $ENV{PATH} = '/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin'; delete @ENV{'IFS', 'CDPATH', 'ENV', 'BASH_ENV'}; } become_daemon(); # MUST do this before we create any sessions POE::Session->create( inline_states => { _start => sub { $_[KERNEL]->yield("loop") }, loop => sub { $_[KERNEL]->delay_set("loop", 10) }, }); $poe_kernel->run(); exit(0);
This example fails in the same way: POE::Kernel's run() method was never called.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
