I am trying to a script to make my program a daemon but I was just
wandering if there are any other ways to do this?
Something in the init scripts will work, but you must beware that
upgrades that modify init scripts may not respect your desires. If it
is a per-user thing, then it is better to use login scripts. If you
need an actual daemon, you might want to consider C rather than a shell
script (or some other scripting language/tool). A binary of some sort,
at least, although it means a bit more work.
