Perl module of the day

I'm working on getting some legacy code to run on a new platform.  One of the weaknesses is that the two daemons are not daemonizing themselves - they're staying in the foreground.

Today's find is the perl module App::Daemon, which is way easy to use and gives me "start", "stop" and "status"  methods in the programmes at once.
