Increment the process priority value for the shell or for command by n. 

The higher the priority value, the lower the priority of a process, and the slower it runs. 

When given, command is always run in a subshell, and the restrictions placed on commands in simple if commands apply. 

If command is omitted, nice increments the value for the current shell. If no increment is specified, nice sets the process priority value to 4. 

The range of process priority values is from -20 to 20. Values of n outside this range set the value to the lower, or to the higher boundary, respectively.

+n = Increment the process priority value by n.
-n = Decrement by n. This argument can be used only by the privileged user.
