>>Hello,>>>>How can a make a python script run in "deamon mode"? (on a linux box)>>>>That is, I want to run the program via "python myfile.py" and have it drop me back to the command line.  The program should continue running until I kill it via it's PID, the machine shuts >>down, or the program itself decides to shutdown.   It should _not_  die when I simply log-out, etc.>> >>Is there a standard library module to help with this?>>>>-- Thank you I have read through the rest of the replies for this problem and was wondering if something similar could be done in Windows (XP).Unfortunately it seems the Linux and Windows os and sys modules differ too much so the suggested approach does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated
