how do I run a process in the background?

Feb 21st, 2007 04:45
Articles Hosting, Capt. Mooboy, shirley cohen,

When calling another program on a unix system,
exec("/path/to/program > /dev/null &");
This will cause "program" to run in the background and return to the 
php script immediately.
i hope that helps:
