Spread 4.0.0 C API

  Multicast Group Communication Daemon

  spread [-l y/n] [-n proc_name] [-c config_file]

  -l y/n Turn on or off logging. Default is off.
  -n proc_name Force this daemon to be identified by a specific process name.
  -c config-file Use an alternate configuration file config-file instead of ./spread.conf.


spread runs the Spread daemon on the local machine using the default configuration file spread.conf unless told otherwise. The default config file location. /etc/spread.conf is also searched if a local file is not found.

The daemon will output some startup information to stdout and any severe errors will also be output to stdout. Redirecting standard out to a file or using the EventLogFile directive in the spread.conf file is recommended if you are interested in log messages.
