NOHUP(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		      NOHUP(1)

NAME
     nohup -- invoke a command immune to hangups

SYNOPSIS
     nohup command [arg	...]

DESCRIPTION
     The nohup utility invokes command with its	arguments and at this time
     sets the signal SIGHUP to be ignored. The signal SIGQUIT may also be set
     to	be ignored.  If	the standard output is a terminal, the standard	output
     is	appended to the	file nohup.out in the current directory.  If standard
     error is a	terminal, it is	directed to the	same place as the standard
     output.

     Nohup exits 1 if an error occurs, otherwise the exit status is that of
     command.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following variable is utilized	by nohup.

     HOME  If the output file nohup.out	cannot be created in the current di-
	   rectory, the	nohup utility uses the directory named by HOME to cre-
	   ate the file.

SEE ALSO
     signal(3)

STANDARDS
     The nohup utility is expected to be IEEE Std 1003.2 ("POSIX.2") compati-
     ble.
