Re: how to nohup on windows?

From unix/linux manpages:
nohup - run a command immune to hangups, with output to a non-tty
cron - daemon to execute scheduled commands (ISC Cron V4.1)
The purposes of the commands are not mutually exclusive; you can place into cron a script which contains a nohup; on my experience, i use nohup:
- from command line prompt, when I need to close the session before the end of excution of the script
- in cron jobs scripts, when i need to collect all of its output, for example:
nohup my_script.sh > my_script.log 2>&1 &
There can be many other situations to use one, the other or bot, yet.
