Complete a partial written C daemon. The daemon must:

- read the xml file, in the xml file there are references to a number of tif files
- move all referenced tif files to the work directory
- use a shell command foreach tif file and call "ABBY finereader CLI utility" to
  recognized (OCR) the text in the TIF file. The utility will generate a text output file
- read the text file and write the text in the xml file
