prefork

Quick Description

prefork is a utility to prefork inetd-style wait services which itself runs as an inetd-style wait service. prefork expects to be passed file descriptor zero (0) as a listening socket on which accept(2) can be called and will spawn children, passing them file descriptor zero (0) under the expectation that these children will service the incoming connexions. The children should then service connexions by calling accept(2) on the socket.

For more documentation, please refer to the man page (HTML, PDF).
