i think u want to make it as daemon
here is what i think u should do

Code:
int main()
{
    /*SOME CODE*/

    switch(fork())
    {
        case 0:
                setpgrp();//check for man page
                close(0);
                close(1);
                /* YOUR SERVICE PROGRAM CODE
                 -
                 -
                 -
                  */
                 //your service code should redirect
                 //stderr to a log file 
        default:
                sleep(1);
                printf("SERVICE STARTED\n");
                exit(0);
    }
}
