"service" like redhat

"service" like redhat

One of many things that I like in Redhat is "service" tool to start, stop registered service (daemons). I realised that in my current ubuntu 8.10, this tool is already installed by default, which is really good. I am pretty sure that it will still available in newer release.
What about in Debian? To have such tool, you need to install "sysvinit-utils" package.

# aptitude install sysvinit-utils

to use it, simply type like the following
# service  start
# service stop
# service restart
# service status

In ubuntu (also in debian, if I'm not mistaken), you can use "tab" command completion, when you are trying to enter the . Very neat!
