comment How do I detach a process from Terminal, entirely?
@sjas No! That would make you inject literal data into shell code! It will result in bugs of all sorts depending on what the arguments were and could have destructive effects (never mind that creating arbitrary code execution is very unsafe)

@Hi-Angel when you close an interactive bash shell, bash HUPs all active jobs. When you ^Z and bg a process it is still a job, be it a background one. To remove it as a job, use disown, then the process will keep on living after you close the shell since bash won't HUP it anymore.
