       init-d-script - interpreter for short and simple init.d scripts.


       Generic init.d script framework to reduce the redundant code in /etc/init.d/.  The goal is
       to create an init.d script that is Debian and  LSB  compliant.   When  the  Debian  policy
       conflict  with  the  LSB,  the  Debian  policy take preference.  See The LSB specification
       generic/iniscrptact.html⟩ for information about init.d scripts in the LSB.

       This  is a simple example on how init-d-script can be used to start and stop a daemon with
       PID file support:

       ### BEGIN INIT INFO
       # Provides:          atd
       # Required-Start:    $syslog $time $remote_fs
       # Required-Stop:     $syslog $time $remote_fs
       # Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
       # Default-Stop:      0 1 6
       # Short-Description: run at jobs
       # Description:       Debian init script to start the daemon
       #                    running at jobs.
       ### END INIT INFO

       In addition to the DAEMON setting, one can specify DESC, NAME, PIDFILE (none means no  PID
       file),  or  implement  override  functions  do_force_reload_override,  do_reload_override,
       do_restart_override,    do_start_override,    do_start_cmd_override,     do_start_prepare,
       do_start_cleanup  do_status_override,  do_stop_override,  do_stop_prepare, do_stop_cleanup
       and do_stop_cmd_override.

       If the daemon support reloading, implement the  do_reload  function  to  make  the  init.d
       script recognize the reload operation as well as use it for the force-reload operation.

       If  DAEMON  is  'none',  the  check  to  see  if  the daemon is installed is disabled, and
       replacement functions do_start_cmd_override, do_stop_cmd_override  and  do_status_override
       functions must be implemented.

       Services  supporting  reload  should define the do_reload function.  If the service handle
       reload using a SIGUSR1 signal, the following alias can be  used  instead  of  implementing
       ones own do_reload function:

       alias do_reload=do_reload_sigusr1


              Bourne  shell  interpreter  with  implementation  of  init.d  actions  /etc/init.d/
              Location of init.d scripts.
