Launching a cli server as background process in OSX

Thanks everyone - Mark - it's not an issue with accessing hugo from shell -
get shell ("hugo server") works fine - it just blocks as the server process
keeps running as it should do - so I want to background it.
Richard - yes I've tried that. In fact I tried all these different
techniques to the best of my ability:
- *put shell ("hugo server")*
- *put shell ("hugo server &")*
- *get shell ("nohup hugo server >&/dev/null")*
- *get shell ("screen hugo server")*
*I've tried various combinations of this in a bash script:*
> hugo server
> echo "All processes done!"
- *get shell ("bash bg_hugo_server.sh")*
- *open* process "bash bg_hugo_server.sh"
- *launch "bg_hugo_server.sh"*
It's something over the years I've had a go at several times. Always
assumed there would be some way of doing it - so I spent half a day trying
to no joy. I guess the question comes down to:
- How do you nackground a persistant shell process in Livecode on OSX
(and other platforms)?
I'll try and get a simple test scenario...
