This is useful information from Kurt Kilpela:
The character & has special meaning in bash (and other shells.) It tells the
shell to execute the command in the background. This is not a specific
feature of topaz.

If you run a command with &, stdout/stderror are configured to print in the
terminal. Also, closing the terminal will result in the background process's
termination. To prevent this, you can use the 'nohup' command.

nohup topaz arg1 arg2 &

This will redirect stdout/stderror to a file called 'nohup.out'. Closing the
terminal will allow the background process to continue running.
