Can I nohup/screen an already-started process?
On Unix (specifically, Linux), I've started a job in a regular ssh->bash session. I'd like to leave work soon, but I now realize that the job is going to take several hours.
If I had just started this job in screen, I could detach and go home. But I didn't.
Is there any way to disconnect the job from its ssh session, so I can shut down my computer, (dropping the TCP connection and killing the ssh session), and yet have the program keep running?
I don't care about its output -- in fact, I redirected stdout to a file. I just want it to run to completion.
