notify - alert user when status of a job changes


notify [%job ...]


This command is a C-shell built-in command.

The notify(1) command causes the shell to notify the user asynchronously when the status of any of the specified jobs (or, without %job, the current job) changes, instead of waiting until the next prompt, as it usually does. The job argument can be a number, a string, ", %, +, or -, as described in "Jobs" in tcsh(1). See also the notify shell variable in tcsh(1) .
