   scheduling.  With no COMMAND, print  the  current  niceness.   Niceness
   values  range  from  -20  (most  favorable to the process) to 19 (least
   favorable to the process).

   Mandatory arguments to long options are  mandatory  for  short  options

   -n, --adjustment=N
          add integer N to the niceness (default 10)

   NOTE:  your  shell  may  have  its  own  version of nice, which usually
   supersedes the version described here.  Please refer  to  your  shell's
   documentation for details about the options it supports.
