`nice': Run a command with modified scheduling priority ======================================================= `nice' prints or modifies the scheduling priority of a job. Synopsis: nice [OPTION]... [COMMAND [ARG]...] If no arguments are given, `nice' prints the current scheduling priority, which it inherited. Otherwise, `nice' runs the given COMMAND with its scheduling priority adjusted. If no ADJUSTMENT is given, the priority of the command is incremented by 10. You must have appropriate privileges to specify a negative adjustment. The priority can be adjusted by `nice' over the range of -20 (the highest priority) to 19 (the lowest). Because most shells have a built-in command by the same name, using the unadorned command name in a script or interactively may get you different functionality than that described here. The program accepts the following option. Also see Note: Common options. `-n ADJUSTMENT' `-ADJUSTMENT' `--adjustment=ADJUSTMENT' Add ADJUSTMENT instead of 10 to the command's priority.
