Continue running already back grounded jobs

From raju

Use the disown shell builtin to exit the shell but continue running already back grounded jobs. The syntax changes from shell to shell.

zsh

    disown [ job ... ]
    

bash

    disown [-ar] [-h] [jobspec ...]
    

Example:

    foo &
    disown %1
    exit
    

Relevant commands:

  • find the parent pid
    ps xao pid,ppid,comm | grep foo
    
  • get information on a process
    ps aux | grep NNNN
    

Ref:-

Note:- To attach a disowned job, the instructions in https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/31824/how-do-i-attach-a-terminal-to-a-detached-process might be helpful. But I have not tried them.
