If I start a process by typing it in normally at the command line, such as
and then decide I want to move that to the background, I know that I can use something like
ctrl+z and then
bg 1 (or
jobs first if needed to get the id) to put it in the background.
My question is if there is a way to move a job from the foreground directly to the background without stopping it - like another shortcut besides
ctrl+z that would do that.
I also realize that I can append
& to the end of the original command to start it in the background, but the question is in regards to when you start a process in the foreground and then realize you want to move it to the background.
