comment Get PID of a function executed in the background
This question is very similar to How to get the pid of the last executed command in shell script?. The only essential difference is that this questions is asking about a function. But, as it turns out, it doesn't make the answer different (the function is executed in a backgrounded subshell).

comment What is this folder /run/user/1000?
What if: I have started a "background" computation process with nohup, and it saves its intermediate results/data in a temp file. Can I count on it not being wiped while the process is running, or it will be wiped, and the process started with nohup will loose its data?
