This utility starts and controls execution of external programs, called components. Each component is a stand-alone program, which is executed in the foreground. Upon startup, pies reads the list of components from its configuration file, starts them, and remains in the background, controlling their execution. If any of the components terminates, the default action of Pies is to restart it. However, it can also be programmed to perform a variety of another actions such as, e.g. sending mail notifications to the system administrator, invoking another external program, etc.
