Terminal Commands

I'm pondering whether to add job control into this section, or whether a seperate section would make sense. Eg, & to launch an app in the background, CTRL-Z to stop an app, bg and fg to background and foreground it. It's really handy. -- Gricey

Also, I put a (use with care) next to the killall command. Killall is fun for casual stuff, but you may end up killing more instances of something than you planned. A better way of doing it, though it isn't as fast, is to use ps with grep and kill the specific PID. You can also kill a process by PID from top by pressing k, although your process may not appear in the top list. -- Gricey
