GNU/Linux Command – NOHUP

nohup — Run a command even after HangUP(logout).


`nohup’ runs the given COMMAND with hangup signals ignored, so that the command can continue running in the background event after you logout from that session. By default, `nohup’ does not run the command in the background. We have do it by ending command line with an `&’.

Create script: sleep 60 echo Bharathi date $ chmod 555 -- Add execute permission. $ nohup & -- Run the script in background. $ logout -- Logout the session. Again login after 2 mins. $ cat nohup.out -- All output of will be redirected   to this file.
