NAME

       nice - run a program with modified scheduling priority

SYNOPSIS

       nice [OPTION] [COMMAND [ARG]...]

       process) to 19 (least favorable to the process).

       Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too.

       -n, --adjustment=N
              add integer N to the niceness (default 10)

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit

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