       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.

       Nice returns the exit status of the subject command.
