                      [options] [jobIDs]

Let job run, but disassociate it from the shell. By default, does not even list the job as an active job; commands like jobs and fg will no longer recognize it. When -h is specified, the job is recognized but is kept from being killed when the shell dies.

Options

-a

Act on all jobs.

-h

Do not pass a SIGHUP signal received by the shell on to the job.
