Hello -

I'm trying to use the daemons library to get a background process
running, and all this is on a windows (xp) machine. I get an error
saying the fork() function isn't implemented on this
machine(NotImplementedError), which obviously makes sense since this
isn't unix. However, is there a similar library that'll work for
windows? I'd appreciate a simple example if there is a way to accomplish
this.
