\fIincrond\fR can be started from /etc/rc, /etc/rc.local and so on. It daemonizes itself (returns immediately) and doesn't need to be started with & and through \fInohup\fR(1). It can be run on foreground too.

\fBEnvironment variables:\fR For system tables, the default (the same as for incrond itself) environment variable set is used. The same applies to root's table. For non\-root user tables, the whole environment is cleared and then only these variables are set: LOGNAME, USER, USERNAME, SHELL, HOME and PATH. The variables (except PATH) take values from the user database (e.g. /etc/passwd). The PATH variable is set to /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin.
