Generic helper program for writing system initialization scripts. Depending on the operation mode, it starts, stops, reconfigures or displays the status of a specific program.

Primary audience is Slackware system administrators. However, the tool is generic enough to be used on any other Linux (and not only) distribution.

In the contrast to another similar programs like start-stop-daemon, it is designed so that the entire rc file can consist of only one line, invoking (or exec'ing) genrc with the right set of arguments.
