NAME
       nohup - run a command immune to hangups, with output to a non-tty

SYNOPSIS
       nohup COMMAND [ARG]...
       nohup OPTION

DESCRIPTION
       Run COMMAND, ignoring hangup signals.

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit

       If  standard  input is a terminal, redirect it from an unreadable file.
       If standard output is a terminal, append output to 'nohup.out' if  pos-
       sible,  '$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.
