       nohup - run a command immune to hangups, with output to a non-tty


       nohup COMMAND [ARG]...
       nohup OPTION


       Run COMMAND, ignoring hangup signals.

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       If  standard  input  is  a  terminal,  redirect  it from /dev/null.  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.
