I would like to start a session, start running a batch, and then log off the system.
I sometimes work from home, and would like to be able to dial in remotely, start a process, and then log off, so I dont have to tie up my phone line for the several hours the batch runs. I am using SCO v5. Thank You for any advice.

There is a command called "nohup" for such cases.
It redirects the output of a command to a file ("nohup.out")
and prevents it from being killed when you log off.
For example:
> nohup my-batch-process &
> logout
