I have been programming in Microsoft Windows for some time now, using VB VC C++ C, and recently have decided to look into a project where Linux is going to be a far superior solution than Microsoft due to it's flexibility.
I have done some simple test projects in Linux developing a couple of terminal programs, some X windows gui apps all in c++. However I have a project that is slightly different and I am at a loss to what documentation I should be searching for to get it going.
I basically want to create a set of services for a Linux Server, I want the services to have the following behaviour:
- Run regardless of whether or not a user is logged into Linux or not
- Be able to be started or stopped from the Server control panel.
Can someone do me a big favour and point me in the direction of the appropriate API documentation?
Thanks a mill in advance
