start-stop-daemon: help for start, stop, create pidfile for your command that doesn't have pidfile

You have a command to start a long running process but it doesn't create a pidfile for you to write a script to start/stop it. start-stop-daemon could help that.

This is a document of the command.

Example:

start-stop-daemon -d dir_want_to_run_on -b -m -p pidfile.pid --start --startas command
start-stop-daemon -p pidfile.pid --stop

-b : background
-m : make file (need to use with -p)
-p : pid file name (need to use with -m)
