Hello All,
I have one dumb question,
I wanted to write a process which monitors the exit status of the daemon,

The Main process would fork a service, which would internally fork a child
and , exit from the process. If main process wants to query the status of
the daemon, how it can be achived.

For ex :
Process A would call a syslog service, which would internally fork a child,
daemon it and exit, so if process A wants to wait for the syslog process,
is it possible.

Thanks in advance
