daemonizer is a tool that starts a process while detaching it from the terminal. It makes the given process an orphan, closes all files descriptors, and reopens standard input and output to a log file. This allows you to run any program as a daemon.

Release Notes: This release adds a -p/--pid command line option to specify where to write the PID of the daemon.
Release Notes: The environment variables are now safely cleared before executing the deamon (--keep-environment can be used to override the default behavior). A bug that caused the daemon to be executed before being adopted by init was fixed.
