[Openmcl-devel] how to deploy a image with swank run as a daemon?

I am not sure if I understand you correctly. I use the unix program screen
to run my lisp application ¡°as daemon¡± ¨C I mean as a long running
background process. I find this very handy. If I want to use slime/swank, I
attach to the screen session, load swank and start a server. Rem: I have
several processes running within the image so the repl is always free and


Hope this helps.

I want to deploy a Lisp image which is runnable with Swank. This can be done
by using the image dump function provided by lisp implementations. But how
can it run as a daemon? 

Detachtty does a good job, but when I deploy, detachtty is required by the
user; I don't like this solution, I just want a standalone one.

Restas-daemon and sb-daemon may be another choice, but both are
SBCL-related. Is there a portable solution, or one just for Clozure CL?

I tried the daemon library from quicklisp too, but when I started Swank in
it, it hung. I could see in the proc file system that the socket file
descriptors were destroyed.

Now I have no idea.

Does anyone have something to advise?
