Quick Reference

  • Run process that can live beyond the terminal:

nohup {{command options}}

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 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.
