New command that runs non-interactively

Issue #178 resolved
Erik Schnetter created an issue

SimFactory should offer a command that is halfway in between "submit" and run". This command should start a simulation immediately, but should run it in the background while redirecting stdout and stderr to the usual locations in the simulation's output directory.

Technically, this command would be on the same level as "submit", while "run" would reside at a lower level. For example, "run" would expect an active simulation (and would not activate a simulation), while this new command would activate the simulation.

    As of git hash 868ec6aa "simrestart: duplicate log data to file in sim run" of simfactory2 one can use:

    nohup sim run --parfile foo.par &>/dev/null &

    or one’s favorite equivalent for this since run duplicates output to both stdout and the simfactory foo.out log file.
