Cleaner version, that removes all temporary files and doesn't change the working directory

# Download file
wget -O ~/start-stop-daemon.tar.gz

# Extract the directory
mkdir ~/start-stop-daemon
tar zxvf ~/start-stop-daemon.tar.gz -C ~/start-stop-daemon

# Compile and move executable
gcc ~/start-stop-daemon/apps/sys-utils/start-stop-daemon-IR1_9_18-2/start-stop-daemon.c -o ~/start-stop-daemon/start-stop-daemon
cp ~/start-stop-daemon/start-stop-daemon /usr/sbin/

# Clean up
rm -rf ~/start-stop-daemon
rm -f ~/start-stop-daemon.tar.gz
