    How do I make my Linux app standalone?

    Hey!

    Im running my app from another app like xterm. I want it to be standalone so when I launch the app it must not block xterm. I want it to have similar properties like when you run with "&" like ./app &....

    The reason why I want this is that my app blocks my master application which is very bad....


    Thanks!

    - Mike

    didnt help me a lot, I want the app to be standalone and not just react to if it is.

    If I start it using xterm like "./app", the app blocks xterm and it cant continue if you now close down the app. Thats the standard setting but I want the app to be a separate thread (or what do you call it???). Basically its a imageviewing tool and its really frustrating that you cant continue working!!! Again, I want the app to break free like when you use ./app &...or somethin!

    Thanks!
