Syntacticly that's three command. A semicolon is like a newline, so its
as though you've typed:
nohup cmd 1
Since nohup expects one command, you need one command. SInce you want
three, invoke the shell as your command:
nohup sh -c 'cmd1; cmd2; cmd3'
Many thanks for that gem.
I often find nohup very unreliable. I have had jobs fail submitted with
nohup. I was thinking of switching to using screen. Maybe you could give
that a try?
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
