From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

fg is a job control command in Unix and Unix-like operating systems that resumes execution of a suspended process by bringing it to the foreground and thus redirecting its standard input and output streams to the user's terminal.[1] fg is required to be included in an operating system in order for it to be POSIX compliant.[2]
