4.5.3 Modifier Options

These options modify the program behavior:


Read this configuration file instead of the default $sysconfdir/dicod.conf. See Configuration.


Operate in foreground. See Daemon Mode.

-L dir

Adds dir to the beginning of module load path. See load path, for detailed discussion.


In daemon mode, process connections in the main process, without starting subprocesses for each connection (see Daemon Mode). This means that the daemon is able to serve only one client at a time. The --single-process option is provided for debugging purposes only. Never use it in production environment.


Output the diagnostics to stderr. See –stderr.


After successful startup, output any diagnostic to syslog. This is the default.
