in reply to Perl script as daemon

service ... start

A bit vague but sounds like you're trying to run your daemon on windows. If so, check Turn a perl script into a Win32 Service and references therein.

Otherwise, please show some code and/or error messages.

    Hmmm, just voted up your post then saw This runs fine as an executable (linux),... in the OP ... so, no Windoze there then, so we're talking an OS - not a pretend one ;-D

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))

      Yep, saw that too but I guessed that the OP transferred the script to windows when I read "service ... start"

      Of course, now that I think about it, some (all?) modern linux distributions use a GUI for services so you're probably right and I tried to answer the wrong question. Certainly wouldn't be the first time.

        Hi, thanks for the replies. Yes I think its that stdin/out are not available to the service. The command is basically an `snmpwalk` that should run and return the result which my script deals with. I've also tried using in/out pipes while getting another file to run the snmp, but the syswrite isnt sending anything. Arghhh sorry for the vagueness I haven't the code with me atm. Dave.

    Some Linux distros (RH?) have a "service" command, too. But it is not standard and non-portable.


    Today I will gladly share my knowledge and experience, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so". ;-)
