Java Minimize ksh


Have any command which can minimize the ksh windows?

I use telnet to connect to server.

The best I can figure, you want to be able to run a few programs at once. Is this correct?
If so, you can use the & operator at the end of a command, then use the jobs command, ^Z, and fg / bg.

If my first statement is correct, please reply back, and I'll be happy to give a little more insight into all of this...

Sorry, i haven't mention the details of what i want to do.
let me explain it.

i) 2 terminals, A and B.
ii) A invoke B's program (through Java RMI)
iii) A then minimize its command shell.
<= point iii) is my hope, let user seems as the terminals terminated.
iv) B can run its program.

So you want terminal A to continue running the program after the user has logged off?

My hope is that

i. Actually, the Terminal A is still running but the terminal is minimized.

ii. The terminal B is still the invoked program.

I'm very sorry, to my knowledge you can't "minimize" a shell, nor can a "terminal" be run like a program from another terminal.

Maybe you can be very specific and spell out EXACTLY what you're trying to do - I'll do my best to help.

I have not explained in detail.
Let me try to explain what i want to do.

1. In windows 98.
2. Use "telnet" to login to UNIX machine.
3. user can use their mouse to click the top-right-hand-corner's minimize icon "_"' to minimize this windows.
4. But now, i hope I can use command to minimize the windows rather than click the icon. <== this is my hope.

I hope you can understand what my hope.
