/day'mn/ or /dee'mn/ (From the mythological
meaning, later rationalised as the acronym "Disk And Execution
MONitor") A program that is not invoked explicitly, but lies
dormant waiting for some condition(s) to occur. The idea is
that the perpetrator of the condition need not be aware that a
daemon is lurking (though often a program will commit an
action only because it knows that it will implicitly invoke a
daemon).

For example, under {ITS} writing a file on the {LPT} spooler's
directory would invoke the spooling daemon, which would then
print the file. The advantage is that programs wanting files
printed need neither compete for access to, nor understand any
idiosyncrasies of, the {LPT}. They simply enter their
implicit requests and let the daemon decide what to do with
them. Daemons are usually spawned automatically by the
system, and may either live forever or be regenerated at
intervals.

{Unix} systems run many daemons, chiefly to handle requests
for services from other {hosts} on a {network}. Most of these
are now started as required by a single real daemon, {inetd},
rather than running continuously. Examples are {cron} (local
timed command execution), {rshd} (remote command execution),
{rlogind} and {telnetd} (remote login), {ftpd}, {nfsd} (file
transfer), {lpd} (printing).

Daemon and {demon} are often used interchangeably, but seem to
have distinct connotations (see {demon}). The term "daemon"
was introduced to computing by {CTSS} people (who pronounced
it /dee'mon/) and used it to refer to what {ITS} called a
{dragon}.

Disk And Execution MONitor (Unix)

daemon: /day´mn/, /dee´mn/, n. [from Maxwell's Demon, later incorrectly retronymed asDisk
And Execution MONitor’] A program that is not invoked explicitly, but
lies dormant waiting for some condition(s) to occur. The idea is that the
perpetrator of the condition need not be aware that a daemon is lurking
(though often a program will commit an action only because it knows that it
will implicitly invoke a daemon). For example, under
ITS, writing a file on the LPT spooler's directory
would invoke the spooling daemon, which would then print the file. The
advantage is that programs wanting (in this example) files printed need
neither compete for access to nor understand any idiosyncrasies of the LPT.
They simply enter their implicit requests and let the daemon decide what to
do with them. Daemons are usually spawned automatically by the system, and
may either live forever or be regenerated at intervals.

Daemon
the Greek form, rendered "devil" in the Authorized Version of
the New Testament. Daemons are spoken of as spiritual beings
(Matt. 8:16; 10:1; 12:43-45) at enmity with God, and as having a
certain power over man (James 2:19; Rev. 16:14). They recognize
our Lord as the Son of God (Matt. 8:20; Luke 4:41). They belong
to the number of those angels that "kept not their first
estate," "unclean spirits," "fallen angels," the angels of the
devil (Matt. 25:41; Rev. 12:7-9). They are the "principalities
and powers" against which we must "wrestle" (Eph. 6:12).
