I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and I am trying to view the list of running jobs using the jobs command yet there is no results shown and when I enter "man jobs" the shell responds that there is no such command available. am I doing the wrong way to view job list? and if so what would be the solution to it?
jobs is shell builtin,so no man but
The use is simply
vi& #vi goes in background(i know,is useseless) jobs #return status jobs -p #return status and pid % #resume first job, vi in this case %2 #resume second job ctrl-z #suspend job
For more options and use
If you want to see processes
ps #show process ps -ef #sv style,all processes ps aux #bsd style,all processes man ps #better read
