Continue executing file after you logout


If you log in remotely and start a program in the shell then set it to run in the background will it still execute if you logout?

I have no idea but a sollution could be to start the program in a 'screen'. thats how I run my irc client

-d -m Start screen in "detached" mode. This creates a new session but
doesn't attach to it. This is useful for system startup
scripts.

screen -r atach

There is a command called nohup that you can use to start the program. The program name stands for 'no HUP'. Output is redirected to a file, and logging out will not cause the HUP signal begin sent to the background program.

The nohup command is one of the GNU coreutils. Read through the `info nohup` texinfo manual for details. The 'man nohup' may not contain all the details that are in the info page.

I always thought it stood for "no hang-up"

HUP stands for Hang UP so both versions are correct.
