NAME            nice -- set program in low priority

SYNOPSIS        sys nice  / nice = 34.

DESCRIPTION     The currently executing process is set into the

                lowest priority execution queue.  Background jobs

                that execute a very long time should do this.

                Once done, there is no way to restore a process

                to normal priority.
