man daemon

DAEMON(3)           Linux Programmer's Manual           DAEMON(3)

       daemon - run in the background

       #include <unistd.h>

       int daemon (int nochdir, int noclose);

       The  daemon()  function  is for programs wishing to detach
       themselves from the controlling terminal and  run  in  the
       background as system daemons.
