CLI Job Control

IBM® Connect:Direct® enables you to switch the CLI Process between the foreground and the background in shells that support job control. This capability enables you to edit the text of saved Processes, issue UNIX commands, and resolve Process errors without exiting and reentering the CLI. Use the following commands to switch the CLI Process:

  • Press the suspend character (Control-Z) to stop or suspend the CLI Process.
  • Issue the fg command to move the CLI Process to the foreground.
Note: If you experience problems with job control, contact your system administrator for suggestions on additional UNIX commands to use.
