Default ./mprime -B in 257

Running 64bit linux mprime 64bit. When I was running 2414 I would use ./mprime -B2 to start two threads in the background. Now I understand the 257 is multi threaded (so I can drop the 2), but how do I start the program in the background (-B). If I use ./mprime and close the terminal (window) it kills mprime, with the -B2 option(previously) I could close the window and mprime would continue to run.

try "nohup ./mprime". I don't know if the -B switch works anymore. I need to check that out.

The -B switch seems to be gone. As George suggested, use "nohup ./mprime &" to launch it in the background if you want it to survive you logging out.
