suspend - suspend the current shell


suspend [--force]


suspend suspends execution of the current shell by sending it a SIGTSTP signal, returning to the controlling process. It can be resumed later by sending it a SIGCONT. In order to prevent suspending a shell that doesn’t have a controlling process, it will not suspend the shell if it is a login shell. This requirement is bypassed if the --force option is given or the shell is not interactive.
