Question Startup Script

I recently downloaded the latest version available for a FreeBSD-11 64bit machine. The FreeBSD ports system only had a very old version available. Now, I was wondering if anyone has a suitable rc.d startup script for the mprime program. I am not very good at writting scripts myself.

@reboot root /root/mprime &

The first "root" is the user it is running under, and then the second one is the path. Adjust accordingly.

This claims the @reboot should work:
