Unix Tool 1 - Nohup

This post, along with many others to come is serving as a pointer to people that I have worked/will work with about lots of useful unix utilities. Where there is an existing good reference I will just post a link, otherwise I’ll write my own post. Current time demands warrant that I’m going to be link posting a lot!!

The tools are not mentioned in any particular order, so don’t place any significance on which order I choose to mention them.

I am of the opinion that every developer owes it to themselves to get a grounding in unix and its accompanying toolchain, though that’s a discussion for a whole other blog post!

Following posts will be absent of the prior blurb and just get right to the tool.

nohup

Used to keep background jobs running when you exit from a shell session.
