notty -- Execute a program in the background, detached from the control- ling terminal


notty [-012] command args ...


The notty utility will detach the specified command from the controlling terminal, running it in the background. By default stdin, stdout, and stderr are set to /dev/null. The following options are available: -0 Leave stdin open. -1 Leave stdout open. -2 Leave stderr open.


The notty command was originally written in 1994 by Matthew Dillon to provide a convenient shortcut for detaching programs. DragonFly 3.5 May 27, 2008 DragonFly 3.5
