libdaemon is a lightweight C library which eases the writing of UNIX daemons.
It consists of the following parts:
* Wrapper around fork() for correct daemonization of a process
* Wrapper around syslog() for simple log output to syslog or STDERR
* An API for writing PID files
* An API for serializing signals into a pipe for use with select() or poll()
* An API for running subprocesses with STDOUT and STDERR redirected to syslog
Routines like these are included in most of the daemon software available. It
is not simple to get these done right and code duplication is not acceptable.
This package contains the API documentation of the library.

libdaemon (0.14-7) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload
* Add a trivial build/run autopkgtest
* debian/gbp.conf: Configure for DEP-14 branch names
* Upgrade to debhelper 11 compat level
- Stop running dh-autoreconf explicitly, it is now the default
- libdaemon-doc Breaks older libdaemon-dev because developer
documentation is now in /usr/share/doc/libdaemon-dev
* Replace libdaemon0-dbg with automatic dbgsym package
* Use dh_missing instead of deprecated dh_install --list-missing
* Switch Vcs-* to
* Stop using deprecated Priority: extra
* Only install README in libdaemon-doc
* Only run doxygen and lynx if building libdaemon-doc (Closes: #870765)
* Use default dpkg build flags
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.4. No further changes.
* Mark documentation as Multi-Arch: foreign

libdaemon (0.14-6) unstable; urgency=medium
* Use dh-autoreconf to update the autotools generated files in order to
build on new ports like ppc64el. (Closes: #745787)
2014-04-04 - Michael Biebl <>
libdaemon (0.14-5) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move the man pages into libdaemon-doc as well. (Closes: #743590)

libdaemon (0.14-4) unstable; urgency=medium
* Move the API documentation out of libdaemon-dev into a separate arch-all
package libdaemon-doc and make libdaemon-dev suggest that package.
Doxygen embeds timestamps into the documentation which makes those files
architecture-dependent. (Closes: #742984)

* Tighten list of installed man pages to work around a bug in doxygen which
now generates an oddly named Directory Reference man page.
