    The word daemon is derived from the Greek word daimon, meaning a
    "supernatural being" or "spirit", rather than demon, referring to the
    fallen angels or followers of Satan. Some would insist that Unix is
    infested with both daemons and demons. In Unix, daemons are typically
    started by the root process when the operating system is initialized,
    and run in the background indefinitely. Daemons typically spend most
    of their time waiting for an event or period when they will perform
    some task. Examples of common Internet daemons include WU-Ftpd,
    Apache, BIND, and Sendmail. These particular daemon programs are
    responsible in part for making the Internet useful, but daemons also
    serve other purposes that are not as visible to users. In this
    tutorial, we'll learn how easy it is to turn a Perl script into a
    daemon process.
