NAME

       setsid - run a program in a new session

SYNOPSIS

       setsid [options] program [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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 value of this
              program as the return value of setsid.

       -V, --version
              Display version information and exit.

       -h, --help
              Display help text and exit.
