Is it possible for nohup to write the output both to the file nohup.out AND to the screen/terminal?

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I am using the bash shell. I frequently use nohup to ensure that my processes are not stopped when I close the shell/terminal that started them. I use a syntax like: nohup myprocess When starting, nohup gives the message: nohup: ignoring input and appending output to 'nohup.out' Then, nohup gives no more output to the screen; it is all written to nohup.out. Frequently, however, I would like to monitor the progress of my computation. I can do this by reading nohup.out using vi or tail, but this can be time consuming to do a lot, especially when my computations take several hours. (HowTos)
