Priority of processes (using nice) started from within a script

I was wondering if I have a shell/perl script that starts 3 processes, and I start the shell script using 'nice -n 15 myscript' do all the processes that the shell/perl script starts inherit the priority of the parent process? (in this case would they all be spawned with a 15 priority?)

I know it's a late answer but the 'nice'd process inherits his
Process Priority. you can look in KDE with CTRL+ESC, use tree-view or
the console command 'ps f -A'

Wonder if this reads someone.
