Hi, is there any way in UNIX(solaris and Ubuntu to be precise) to lunch an app in the commandline where it wouldn't have to wait for me to close the app before I regain control of the CLI again? For example:

./eclipse


this would run the eclipse script but the CLI pauses until I close eclipse. I want to be able to run another app after I've lunched eclipse. Any ideas? Thanks!

./eclipse &

That "&" means "run in the background."
