    working background

    I am using a *nix system and I've wrote some tools which produce some files. Is there any way to program them in order to run without the terminal popping up every now and then?

    Can you elaborate? I don't really understand the question. What kind of *nix system, why are "terminals popping up"? Are you talking about using cron to schedule something to run, or something?

    Basically Iam using apple's Darwin so I just wrote an applescript to automatically launch every hour some statistic utilities but each time a utility is launched a new terminal window is popping up. What I basically ask is if there is a way to code each utility to run in the background (the utilities are written by...just for clearance).

    That's very environment specific, not really anything to do with C, try asking on a MacOS X forum, assuming that's the platform you're running Darwin on.
