I have a running process running in a bash terminal that is printing some prompt, and I would like to send it to the background with the stderr/stdout prompt that is printing either redirected to /dev/null or somewhere else, so that I can keep using that terminal for something else, but not have to kill the process and restart it.

Any suggestions?
