Re: fork

'fork' isn't a command.

It's a function in the standard library functions.

That being said, it's been documented many may times with examples all over the web.

Unless you want to tell us a specific situation you're trying to use it in that you're having issues with, 'google' is your friend.

Re: fork

If you're looking to do this in a script you can use the makeshift "&" at the end of a command to have it execute in the background.

As previously said, google your specific needs and you'll find a cornucopia of information.
