    how scripts run in the background?


    How can I get scripts to run in the background?

    Also, I am not sure how to use tty0 or ttys, I am not sure which or what kind. I mean, I want to have several different terminals at once and ability to switch back and forward.

    Thanks,

    I just figured it out a few days ago. Hit alt-fx where x is 1-8. So alt-f1...alt-f2...alt-f3...etc.

    Maybe I didn't understand your question properly.

    To background a process/script when you execute it put a & behind it or
    control-z then bg to background.

    And, maybe you'd like to check out the program called screen. This is great
    to handle many terminals.
