Nohup transfers

get and put has an option --nohup. When given, Yafc will fork itself to the background and continue to transfer the specified files, allowing you to use your shell or even logout. Output is redirected to the file ~/.yafc/nohup/, or to file specified by option --logfile=FILE.

If you have tagged any files (with the tag command, see tag), add the option --tagged to the get command to transfer those files too. There is an equivalent command for local files and put, namely ltag.

Yafc will also enter nohup mode upon receipt of SIGHUP.

Set nohup_mailaddress in the yafcrc file to a valid mail address if you want to receive a mail notifying you when the transfer is complete.
