guacd: Write the PID to a file.
$ guacd -p ${filename-pid}
try on your machine

The command guacd -p ${filename-pid} launches the guacd (Guacamole proxy daemon) process with a specific filename and process ID (PID) value.

Here's a breakdown of the command:

  • guacd: It is the command used to start the guacd process. The guacd is part of the Guacamole project, which is an open-source remote desktop gateway.

  • -p: It is an option or parameter for the guacd command. In this case, it specifies that the following value is the filename and PID.

  • ${filename-pid}: It is a placeholder or variable. The actual filename and process ID are substituted when executing the command. The filename and PID should be provided as values for this variable.

By running this command, the guacd process will start, using the provided filename and PID. The exact functionality and purpose of these values depend on the context or configuration of the guacd process.

This explanation was created by an AI. In most cases those are correct. But please always be careful and never run a command you are not sure if it is safe.
