Allow sub-processes to live beyond the shell that they are attached to. See also the jobs command. More information:

  • Disown the current job:


  • Disown a specific job:

disown %{{job_number}}

  • Disown all jobs:

disown -a

  • Keep job (do not disown it), but mark it so that no future SIGHUP is received on shell exit:

disown -h %{{job_number}}
