How do I run GAMS in the background on a UNIX machine?

How do I run GAMS in the background?

   gams trnsport &

does not seem to work.

That is correct. GAMS writes directly to /dev/tty and a background job does not have access to that. The following command will do the job:

   gams -lo 0 trnsport &

The log option flag tells GAMS not to write anything to the screen. You can also use -lo 2 which writes the log to trnsport.log.

On some systems after you log out even background processes will get killed. On those systems use:

   nohup gams -lo 2 trnsport &
