30.SH "DESCRIPTION"
31.sp
32These commands control the daemons that are installed by some of the ports\&. If a port provides daemon functionality, a note will be printed during installation advising you how to use it\&.
33.sp
34The daemon functionality is provided by installing a \fBlaunchd\fR(8) configuration file (see \fBlaunchd.conf\fR(5)) and calling \fBlaunchctl\fR(1) on your behalf\&. \fBport load\fR advises launchd to start the daemon defined by a port\(cqs configuration file, also called a \(lqstartup item\(rq\&. Once loaded, launchd will preserve this state \- even across reboots \- until the daemon is unloaded using \fBport unload\fR\&. If you want to restart a daemon, you can use \fBport reload\fR, which is a convenience wrapper around \fBport unload\fR followed by a short delay and \fBport load\fR\&.
35.SH "GLOBAL OPTIONS"
36.sp
37Please see the section \fBGLOBAL OPTIONS\fR in the \fBport\fR(1) man page for a description of global port options\&.
