re-attaching STDOUT

2006-04-05 Thread Nathan Vidican
say one runs a command like so: tar tvzpf _some_big_tar_file_will_take_hours_to_list.tgz then later I exit... leaving it running (note the '') How do I later return and grab the output still coming from that command; where does the output of a command left running in the background go to?

Can I re-direct the output of a given command so a specific ttyv on the machine itself from a remote command; ie redirect stdout for a given command to ttyv2 ? sysutils/screen in the ports collection is very convenient for this sort of thing. Sincerely, -Jan Christian Meyer
