[archive] Deamon or Service

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 20 August 2009]

I would like to create a COBOL program that can run in the background like a Deamon does on a UNIX machine. This program will not have any user interaction, it will be used exclusively to manipulate COBOL data files to create XML files. I have researched the runtime options and I am looking at the -b option, am I on the right track here? I would like for the program to start, run in the background, and control be returned to the os. The program will run indefinately.
