Suppose this situation
wget starts to download file.
I put it in the background.
The command goes into the background.
But its output is still on the console also -- if the console is still open.
Is it possible to stop the command's output?
Wget is only an example; think about a command which writes a lot of output.
At the console, I know it is possible to do
bg and then close terminal and open another, but what if I have only one terminal avaliable and no pseudo-terminals?
