     NAME
          nice, nohup - run commands at low priority or immune to
          hangup

     SYNOPSIS
          nice [ -number ] command [ arguments ]

          nohup command [ arguments ]

     DESCRIPTION
          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 priority, e.g. `--10'.

          Nohup executes command immune to hangup and terminate sig-
          nals from the controlling terminal.  The priority is incre-
          mented by 5.

          Any output not explicitly redirected is appended to the file
          `nohup.out' in the current directory.

     FILES
          nohup.out standard output and standard error file under
          nohup

     DIAGNOSTICS
          Nice returns the exit status of the subject command.

     BUGS
          Quoted arguments don't work right in all cases.  The diffi-
          culty may be avoided by quoting the command, with arguments
          in inner quotes.
