    "START" equivalent for Linux?


    Is there something that could run an program detached without starting a new shell? If the program is not detached, it would exit if you close the shell that started it.

    How about running the program in the background - by appending & to the end of its command?
    It would detach the process from the active tty and run it in background - then you can exit from the shell that started it.
