The executable daemon sconed is run in order to start SconeServer. It does a few things, including:
- Performing platform-specific startup tasks. For example, making the process a daemon.
- Handling command line options.
- Creating the root module kernel, which loads its configuration file, along with any sub-modules, to get SconeServer into a state where it is ready to run.
- Passing control to the kernel module's event loop.
