Hi folks, and a happy new year to you all.
Here's a tricky one, and apologies for the off-topic nature of the post:
If I start a process from a shell which runs in the background, the
standard output of that shell is tied to that terminal. In solaris, if I
exit the shell, the background process keeps running, but loses it's tty
(ps just shows a ? where once there was "pts/13" or whatever). Is there
any way to reconnect a new terminal to this process, or otherwise get hold
of the standard output?
The linux approach appears to be that if the terminal dies so do the
children, which is a good bit cleaner IMO. I don't have a linux box here
to back this up, though (still trying to get our IT department to stop
locking me off the network every time they see a non windows box).
Thanks in advance,
