https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=261200 --- Comment #7 from Ron Wills <email@example.com> --- Okay now this is making sense. Simple examples: $ jobs Outputs from the current shell. $ jobs | cat Jobs is now in a subshell, created by the pipe, with a new jobs table so no output. $ echo $(jobs) | cat or $ echo `jobs` | cat Allows you to pipe the jobs output in a work around the whole subshell thing. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
