I have a unix shell script that calls a bunch of stored procedures etc..
How do i run this script in the background?
i tried run &runeurope.sh
runeurope.sh is the name of the shell script.
But the above syntax looks like it did not run in the backgound.
thank you.

If you want to be able to exit your session before the script has finished use nohup (=No HangUp):
nohup ./runeurope.sh &
