NAME
       runsession - run	a program in a new session/process group

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

DESCRIPTION
       runsession sets up a new	session	and process group with setsid(2), then
       runs program with any additional	args.

       If program does not contain a ``/'' slash  character,  runsession  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
       runsession 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 runses-
	      sion itself.

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

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

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