session timeout for shell script

I am executing script. But this script takes lot of time and in the meantime the shell timeouts without completing the script.
Is there any command which will continue processing the script.

you can try "nohup &" - that would run the in backgroud and "nohup" will help it run even if the session is closed.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but my question is very much related.

When I tried

nohup script.ksh &

A process id is displayed at the terminal, followed by another message,

Stopped.. Not a Terminal

What does it mean by "Not a Terminal"? The default log file nohup.out also contained the text "Not a Terminal"

How do I make the script run in nohup mode now?

I would try to check if there is any issue with my script. It should NOT be waiting for any input from stdin nor should it display the output to stdout.

Suppose we want to sort a huge collection of 1 trillion, 10^12, elements. Doing so with Selection Sort or Insertion Sort would require about n^2 = (10^12)^2 = 10^24 or 1 sextillion comparisons.
True or False?
