NAME
       rundetach - run a program in the	background

SYNOPSIS
       rundetach [-hV] program [ args ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       rundetach  forks	 a  child process into the background, detached	from a
       controlling terminal, in	its own	session	and process  group.   It  then
       runs program with any additional	arguments given	in args.

       If  program  does  not  contain a ``/'' slash character,	rundetach will
       perform a shell-like search for the executable using the	PATH  variable
       in the current environment.

OPTIONS
       -h     Help.  Print a brief usage message to stderr and exit.

       -V     Version.	Print the version number to stderr and exit.

EXIT STATUS
       rundetach exits with one	of the following values:

       0      program  was  invoked and	completed successfully.	 In this case,
	      the exit code is returned	by the program,	rather than by	runde-
	      tach itself.

       100    rundetach	 failed	 because  of a usage error, such as an invalid
	      command-line option or argument.	In this	case, rundetach	prints
	      a	brief error message and	usage help to stderr on	exit.

       111    rundetach	 failed	due to some system or resource error.  In this
	      case, rundetach prints a brief diagnostic	message	to  stderr  on
	      exit.

       1-127  program  was  invoked and	failed with its	own non-zero exit sta-
	      tus.
