Anyone know how to nohup an app after running it? I wasn't aware that
csh did that by default for bg processes, but I use ksh or bash most of
the time anyway - is there any way I can nohup a process by pid, in the
same way as I can nice it? Is there a way to do this through top? Or is
it possible to (maybe) change the PPID of a process while it's running.
to init, say?
