Redcar should --fork by default

Reported by Lee Jarvis | October 10th, 2010 @ 09:53 PM

Is there any reason for not detaching from the terminal by default? And not displaying any information whatsoever, even the version string. A lot of applications seem to work this way, and perhaps a --debug or --verbose option should appear to control glueing to the terminal and such.

    I agree. If you are in a terminal, redcar should fork into background and don't spam useless messages into the terminal.

    A nice workaround is to alias redcar (or rc in my case) to redcar --fork.
