jobs(1)								       jobs(1)

       jobs - Displays status of jobs in the current session

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

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

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

       jobs:  XCU5.0

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

       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  dis‐
       played.	 The  format of job_id is described in the Jobs section of the
       ksh(1) reference page.

       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  exe‐
       cution  environment”.   See  the	 Jobs  section of the ksh(1) reference

       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.

       The  following environment variables affect the execution of jobs: 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 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), wait(1)

       Standards:  standards(5)
