How do you run a job without output going to screen?
Let's say I have a simple script called 'program' that prints variable X, then the script does x=x+1, and then repeats.
How would I start this job in the background, but don't let the output show up on screen?
To start a job in the background, I know I would enter $ program& in Bash, and my hunch is that I would redirect the standard output to a file instead of the monitor.
I tried $ program& > fileoutput, but that still prints to screen.
