       fg - Runs jobs in the foreground

       fg [job_id...]


       The C shell has a built-in version of the fg command.  If you are using
       the C shell, and want to guarantee  that	 you  are  using  the  command
       described  here,	 you  must specify the full path /usr/bin/fg.  See the
       csh(1) reference page for a description of the built-in command.

       Interfaces documented on this reference page conform to industry	 stan‐
       dards as follows:

       fg:  XCU5.0

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


       Specifies the job to be run as a foreground job. If no  job_id  operand
       is  given,  the	job_id	for  the job that was most recently suspended,
       placed in the background or run as a background job is used.  The  for‐
       mat  of job_id is described in the Jobs section of the ksh(1) reference

       If job control is enabled (see the description of set -m in the	ksh(1)
       reference page), the fg utility moves a background job from the current
       environment into the foreground.

       Using fg to place a job into the foreground 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.

       If job control is disabled, the fg utility exits with an error  and  no
       job  is	placed	in  the	 foreground.   The fg 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.

       The following environment variables affect the execution	 of  fg:  Pro‐
       vides  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 vari‐
       ables contain an invalid setting, the utility behaves as if none of the
       variables  had been defined.  If set to a non-empty string value, over‐
       rides 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	multi‐
       byte  characters	 in  arguments).  Determines the locale used to affect
       the format and contents of  diagnostic  messages	 written  to  standard
       error.	Determines the location of message catalogues for the process‐
       ing of LC_MESSAGES.

       Commands:  bg(1), csh(1), jobs(1), kill(1), ksh(1), sh(1p), wait(1)

       Standards:  standards(5)
