The DETACH command disconnects the terminal from your job. Your terminal
is then free to login again. The DETACHed job is still logged in, though,
and is charged at PTY connect rates. It just has no TTY to talk to. Tsk.
The command is simply: .DETACH
To get the job back onto a terminal, you use the ATTACH command, like this:
where 43 was the JOB Number, and [111,222] is the ppn
which matches job 43 (if it doesnt match, it wont work).
Here is a way to start up your job, then detach it and let it go, running
away while you use the terminal for something else.
RUN YOURPROGRAM ;nice long program (which doesnt need a TTY)
^C ;temporarily halt the program
CCONT ;long enough to resume it, but TTY is at monitor
DETACH ;this command will work, since CCONT
;lets you type monitor commands.
Your job will run until it has a need to put some characters to a TTY.
Then it needs to have someone ATTACH it.
