SETSID(1) User Commands SETSID(1)
setsid - run a program in a new session
setsid [options] program [arguments]
setsid runs a program in a new session. The command calls fork(2) if already a process group leader. Otherwise, it executes a program in the current process. This default behavior is possible to override by the --fork option.
-c, --ctty Set the controlling terminal to the current one. -f, --fork Always create a new process. -w, --wait Wait for the execution of the program to end, and return the exit status of this program as the exit status of setsid. -V, --version Display version information and exit. -h, --help Display help text and exit.
