your post is ususally meant to be *slightly* more informative than the title... what is "back out" meant to mean?

Do you mean resume the suspended task? You can use 'jobs' to find the job number and 'fg <job number>' to bring that job to the foreground again.

You might want to look into the following: http://www.gnu.org/directory/screen.html

It also allows you to switch between programs on just one terminal session. The main advantage it has is that it doesn't suspend the program like ctrl-z does (which can be fatal to some programs). I use screen when logging in from work because even if the connection gets dropped the program still stays running and I can continue right where I left off when I log in again.
