Chapter 15. Job Control


Job control, a feature standardized by POSIX.1 and mandated by many standards, allows a single terminal to run multiple jobs. Each job is a group of one or more processes, usually connected by pipes. Mechanisms are provided to move jobs between the foreground and the background and to prevent background jobs from accessing the terminal.
