NAME
       nohup - run a command immune to hangups

SYNOPSIS
       command [arguments]

DESCRIPTION
       executes	 command  with	hangups	 and  quits ignored.  If output	is not
       redirected by the user, both standard output  and  standard  error  are
       sent  to	 If  is	not writable in	the current directory, output is redi-
       rected to otherwise, fails. If a	file is	created, the file's permission
       bits will be set	to

       If  output  from	 is  redirected	to a terminal, or is not redirected at
       all, the	output is sent to

EXTERNAL INFLUENCES
   Environment Variables
       determines the language in which	messages are displayed.

       If is not specified in the environment or is set	to the	empty  string,
       the  value  of is used as a default for each unspecified	or empty vari-
       able.  If is not	specified or is	set to the empty string, a default  of
       "C" (see	lang(5)) is used instead of

       If  any	internationalization variable contains an invalid setting, be-
       haves as	if all internationalization variables are set to "C".  See en-
       viron(5).

   International Code Set Support
       Single- and multi-byte character	code sets are supported.

EXAMPLES
       It  is frequently desirable to apply to pipelines or lists of commands.
       This can	be done	only by	placing	pipelines and command lists in a  sin-
       gle file, called	a shell	script.	 To run	the script using

       features	 apply	to  the	 entire	contents of file.  If the shell	script
       file is to be executed often, the need to type  can  be	eliminated  by
       setting	execute	permission on file.  The script	can also be run	in the
       background with interrupts ignored (see sh(1)):

       file typically contains normal  keyboard	 command  sequences  that  one
       would  want  to continue	running	in case	the terminal disconnects, such
       as:

WARNINGS

       form:

       applies	only  to  command1.   To  correct the problem, use the command
       form:

       Be careful of where standard error is redirected.  The  following  com-
       mand may	put error messages on tape, making it unreadable:

       whereas

       puts the	error messages into file

EXIT STATUS
       The following exit values are returned:

	      The command specified by
			command	was found but could not	be invoked

	      An error occurred	in the nohup utility or	the specified
			command	could not be found

	      Otherwise,  the exit status of nohup will	be that	of the command
	      specified.
