Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Switching back to the command line with suspend, part of Learning nano.
- If you're working in a file…and need to pause your work temporarily…to do something else,…you can do that with Ctrl + Z.…Depending on your setup,…you might have to enable suspension first,…using meta + Z.…I'll press that and it looks like…suspension was enabled already,…so I'll press meta + Z again to re-enable it.…Ctrl + Z invokes the suspend feature…and puts nano in the background…so you can work at the command line.…I'll press that now.…And, you can see here in my terminal,…nano reminds me that I can bring it back…to the foreground with fg,…but I'll do some very important work…here in my terminal first.…
OK, that's enough of that.…Let's go back to nano.…I'll write fg and press Enter.…And I'm right back where I left off.…That's pretty handy.…Just keep in mind that this suspended nano process…lives within the terminal session.…So, if you have nano in the background…and close the terminal session,…your suspended nano session will go away too.…
