How to keep jobs running after logout?

How to keep jobs running after logout?

Post by Bibhas Bhattachar » Thu, 03 Dec 1992 10:14:49



Most of the background jobs get killed when logged out. My question is
how to keep them running even after logout.

Is there any way to bring a job from previous session to foreground?

Let me know if the FAQ talks about this.
Thanks...
Bibhas.

See the man page of nohup

How to keep jobs running after logout?

We are looking for help/suggestions/alternatives on copying a file
from a VAX (running VMS and UCX) to a machine running Unix...

The situation is this:

* We have an application on the Unix machine that needs a
  file that is maintained on the VAX/VMS machine...
* The Unix machine is cross mounted with the VAX...
* The file on the VAX/VMS machine is a binary file...
* We have a program on the Unix machine that can read the VAX/VMS
  just fine (i.e. the structure of the records are correct)...
  (although it does have to reverse some bytes...)

We have tried the following:

1. cp the file from the VAX to the Unix machine...
   File gets copied...the problem  is the file has all
   sorts of VAX/VMS header stuff that screws up our program...

2. uucp the file from the VAX to the Unix machine...
   File gets copied...the problem  is the file has all
   sorts of VAX/VMS header stuff that screws up our program...

3. ftp the file from the VAX to the Unix machine...
   File gets copied over...our program run fines on this file...

Are there any other alternatives???

Is there a program/utility (under Unix) to convert a VAX/VMS file to
a Unix file (i.e. strip out all that header stuff
in the VAX/VMS file that ftp apparently strips out)...

We can always take the ftp route; however, since the file systems
were cross mounted we were hoping that we could use a simple
Unix utility such as cp...

Any help/suggestions/alternatives are greatly appreciated...

If they are both on the same network, have you tried just ftp'ing the file.

        This is *exactly* the type of post this newsgroup does NOT need.
If you know there is an FAQ, RTFFAQ before you post your question. It turns
out that it does answer your question! If you are not willing to do some
reading yourself, then you really don't deserve to have your question
answered.
