Bash Sending a Process to Background

Just to remind myself. To send a process to the background.

  • Hit Ctrl + z (This basically suspends the process)
  • jobs -l (Will list all the process)
  • bg <process number will send the process to the background and make the process running>
  • fg <process number will bring the process to the foreground again>
  • At any point of time you cant type jobs -l to list all the process

That’s all there is to it.
