Provides more information about each job listed. This
information includes the job number, current job, process
group ID, state and the command that formed the job. Displays
only the process IDs for the process group leaders
of the selected jobs. [Tru64 UNIX] Displays jobs that
have stopped or exited since last notified.
By default, the jobs utility displays the status of all
stopped jobs, running background jobs and all jobs whose
status has changed and has not been reported by the shell.
Specifies the jobs for which the status is to be displayed.
If no job_id operand is given, the status information
for all jobs is displayed. The format of job_id is
described in the Jobs section of the ksh(1) reference
The jobs utility displays the status of jobs that were
started in the current shell environment.
When jobs reports the termination status of a job, the
shell removes its process ID from the list of those "known
in the current shell execution environment". See the Jobs
section of the ksh(1) reference page.
The jobs utility does not work as expected when it is
operating in its own utility execution environment because
that environment has no applicable jobs to manipulate.
The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
An error occurred.
ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES [Toc] [Back]
The following environment variables affect the execution
of jobs: Provides a default value for the internationalization
variables that are unset or null. If LANG is unset
or null, the corresponding value from the default locale
is used. If any of the internationalization variables contain
an invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of
the variables had been defined. If set to a non-empty
string value, overrides the values of all the other internationalization
variables. Determines the locale for the
interpretation of sequences of bytes of text data as characters
(for example, single-byte as opposed to multibyte
characters in arguments). Determines the locale used to
affect the format and contents of diagnostic messages
written to standard error and informative messages written
to standard output. Determines the location of message
catalogues for the processing of LC_MESSAGES.
Commands: bg(1), csh(1), fg(1), kill(1), ksh(1), sh(1p),
