              output version information and exit

       If  standard input is a terminal, redirect it from /dev/null.  If standard output is a terminal, append output
       to 'nohup.out' if possible, '$HOME/nohup.out' otherwise.  If standard error is  a  terminal,  redirect  it  to
       standard output.  To save output to FILE, use 'nohup COMMAND > FILE'.

       NOTE:  your  shell  may  have  its  own version of nohup, which usually supersedes the version described here.
       Please refer to your shell's documentation for details about the options it supports.
