    Command:

    dislocate

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           dislocate [ program args...  ]
    
    
    

    INTRODUCTION

           Dislocate  allows  processes  to be disconnected and reconnected to the
           terminal.  Possible uses:
    
                  ?   You can disconnect a process from a  terminal  at  work  and
                      reconnect from home, to continue working.
    
                  ?   After  having your line be dropped due to noise, you can get
                      back to your process  without  having  to  restart  it  from
                      scratch.
    
                  ?   If  you  have a problem that you would like to show someone,
                      you can set up the scenario at your  own  terminal,  discon-
                      nect, walk down the hall, and reconnect on another terminal.
    
                  ?   If you are in the middle of a great game (or whatever)  that
                      does  not  allow you to save, and someone else kicks you off
                      the terminal, you can disconnect, and reconnect later.
    
    
    

    USAGE

           When run with no arguments, Dislocate tells you about your disconnected
           processes and lets you reconnect to one.  Otherwise, Dislocate runs the
           named program along with any arguments.
    
           By default, ^] is an escape that lets you talk to Dislocate itself.  At
           that  point,  you  can disconnect (by pressing ^D) or suspend Dislocate
           (by pressing ^Z).
    
           Any Tcl or Expect command is also acceptable at this point.  For  exam-
           ple, to insert the contents of a the file /etc/motd as if you had typed
           it, say:
    
                send -i $out [exec cat /etc/motd]
    
           To send the numbers 1 to 100 in response to the prompt "next #", say:
    
                for {set i 0} {$i<100} {incr i} {
                    expect -i $in "next #"
                    send -i $out "$i\r"
                }
    
           Scripts can also be prepared and sourced in so that you don't  have  to
           type them on the spot.
    
           Dislocate  is  actually just a simple Expect script.  Feel free to make
           it do what you want it to do or just use Expect directly, without going
           through  Dislocate.   Dislocate  understands  a  few special arguments.
           These should appear before any program name.  Each should be  separated
