NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       jobs - Displays status of jobs in the current session

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       jobs [-l  | -p] job_id...

       [Tru64 UNIX]   jobs [-n] job_id...

STANDARDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Interfaces  documented  on  this reference page conform to
       industry standards as follows:

       jobs:  XCU5.0

       Refer to the standards(5) reference page for more information
 about industry standards and associated tags.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

OPERANDS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

RESTRICTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       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.

EXIT STATUS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The following exit values are returned: Successful completion.
  An error occurred.


       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.
