This question already has an answer here:
While I am always logging into a CentOS server for simulations it got me thinking:
why can't I keep running the simulations even if my session is closed?
I know that when a session is ended or a user logs out,
any process generated from the session is also terminated.
Could there be a way to let the processes keep on running by itself
even if the session is closed?
-- a silly question from a user with not much unix background :)
