nohup - run a command immune to hangups, with output to a non-tty
Run COMMAND, ignoring hangup signals.
- display this help and exit
- output version information and exit
If standard input is a terminal, redirect it from /dev/null. If standard output
is a terminal, append output to `nohup.out' if possible, `$HOME/nohup.out'
otherwise. If standard error is a terminal, redirect it to standard output. To
save output to FILE, use `nohup COMMAND > FILE'.
NOTE: your shell may have its own version of nohup, which usually supersedes the
version described here. Please refer to your shell's documentation for details
about the options it supports.
