( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear monks, so sorry to disturby but i need help I am currently developing a proxy server all in perl and I have tested it and seems to be greate. But there is a problem, I want to meke it run as a daemon service I a Red hat Linux system but I dont know how. The proxy handls its own multi threading and spawns a new instance each time a new connection is made to it. I tried using xinetd superserver to start it but I keep getting this error messagees

04/7/14@19:55:56: DEBUG: 3298 {main_loop} select returned 1
04/7/14@19:55:56: DEBUG: 3298 {server_start} Starting service webcache

04/7/14@19:55:57: DEBUG: 3298 {child_exit} waitpid returned

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.

  • 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).
