I know parity can run as a daemon because the --help has a usage
parity daemon <pid-file> [options] but no further help/clues/documentation is provided. What is
<pid-file> ? A process ID file, and what is that? If it is supposed to be a systemd unit file why doesn't it say so.
The only other clue I can find after searching and searching is this: https://daowiki.atlassian.net/wiki/display/DAO/Ethereum+network It says to edit the parity.service and parity.conf file, however both of those do not exist. I can try creating them but then why is there NOTHING when googling on this. I can't be the first and only person on this planet to want to run parity as a daemon. (I don't want this question to sound negative. I really appreciate the great contribution the ethcore team and their parity project has given to the Ethereum community!)
