Launching process with no controlling terminal
So I started copying a large amount of data from the command line via a ssh terminal. Since the command is tied to the controlling terminal, I assume that if the connection is lost that the command will die with the connection. So, I was wondering if there's a way with jobs like these - that are bound to take a while - to launch the process with my user as the process owner but with no controlling terminal. Also, if that is possible, is there a way to change the controlling terminal of a process to no controlling terminal while the process is running? Thanks in advance for your help.
