Suspend and resume any program using SIGSTOP
Authored by: Mattbot on Sep 18, '03 01:46:03PM

The SIGSTOP and SIGCONT signals work in bash and sh while only STOP and CONT seem to work in all the other shells I've tried. (csh, tcsh, zsh) Bash and sh can do it both ways as stated above.

That doesn't make sense, because it's the same kill program getting the arguments either way.

Kill is a built-in shell utility, not a stand alone binary. Run this command:

which kill

And you get:

kill: shell built-in command.
