nice, nohup - run a command at low priority
nice [ -number ] command [ arguments ]
nohup command [ arguments ]
Nice executes command with low scheduling priority. If the number argument is present,
the priority is incremented (higher numbers mean lower priorities) by that amount up to a
limit of 20. The default number is 10.
The super-user may run commands with priority higher than normal by using a negative pri-
ority, e.g. `--10'.
Nohup executes command immune to hangup and terminate signals from the controlling termi-
nal. The priority is incremented by 5. Nohup should be invoked from the shell with `&'
in order to prevent it from responding to interrupts by or stealing the input from the
next person who logs in on the same terminal.
