running jobs in background in bash
I want to run jobs inthe background in bash. So I set my job going and do a ctrl^z to suspend. Accoridng to the manual if I do bg%<JOBID> the job will continue in the background. By using 'set -b' I see that straight after doing bg %<JOBID> the job is stopped by something. I am using bash 2.05. How can I make jobs run in the background?
That will cause program to execute in the background.
To further this after you put a program using &, as /bin/bash stated, you can view the programs running in the background by using the 'jobs' command. Then if you want to bring a program back to the foreground you can do:
replacing n with the job number given by the 'jobs' command.
