How to start Rev by shell or startup item in the background under Mac OS X

Hi,

Keep in mind that with Tiger (10.4), Apple is providing a new method to 
start  daemons, and other background services -launchd.  It is part of 
the both the client and server.  I would imagine that if you were 
deploying your app on 10.3 or lower you could package it up just like 
you do for linux.  But 10.4 on up it looks like launchd is the way to 
go.

 From Apple's website:

launchd provides faster startup through a unified framework for 
starting, stopping and managing daemons, and incorporates inetd, init, 
mach_init, System Starter and related services. Administrators have a 
single mechanism for auditing, configuring and setting resources limits 
on services.


Regards,

Todd
