nohup

nohup

nohup Invokes a command immune to hangups.
nohup <utility> [<arg> ...]

nohup invokes <utility> with its arguments and at this time sets the signal SIGHUP to be ignored. If the standard output is a terminal, the standard output is appended to the file nohup.out in the current directory. If standard error is a terminal, it is directed to the same place as the standard output.
The following variable is utilized by nohup:
HOME  
If the output file nohup.out cannot be created in the current directory, the nohup utility uses the directory named by HOME to create the file.
