Hello - I'm trying to run a background daemon that will monitor changes in a mysql database. The file to monitor the changes works fine when run by itself from the prompt as $ ruby changes.rb However, when I try to use it in a daemon file, not much happens. Here's the file (changes_daemon.rb): require 'daemons' # all the other required come here def main Daemons.run(path_to_file) end if __FILE__ == $0 main end When I run this at the prompt: $ruby changes_daemon.rb start $ (next shell line after hitting return - no errors) Nothing happens (it's supposed to write to a table and a log file, so I can see if anything occurs). Any insights will be great - thanks!
