bg in Mac OS X

By: Strauss K in macos Tutorials on 2011-02-03  

In Mac OS X, bg is a command used to put a suspended or stopped job in the background, allowing other commands to be executed in the current shell session. The syntax for bg is:

bg [job_spec]

where job_spec specifies the job to be put in the background. If job_spec is not specified, the current job is put in the background.

The bg command is used in conjunction with the fg (foreground) command, which is used to bring a background job to the foreground.
