Simple question

P: n/a
I should implement in C POSIX the possibility to have an exec command in
background like the command & in bash shell.

I simple used a fork+exec without a wait command in the master process.
It seems to be correct, but when I run the programm the cursor disappear
until the child process stops.

Any suggestion?

I suggest that you ask in comp.unix.programming.

Try comp.unix.programmer. fork and exec are not standard C functions.

We must do something. This is something. Therefore, we must do this.

Only one suggestion, please ask on a group where POSIX is topical, such
as comp.unix.programmer, not here. On this group we only discus standard
C, not the extensions provided by POSIX, Windows or any other system you
care to name.
