Every time I run a bash script or a binary, it creates a new process and a messy display, the output text comes only when the process is done. I don't understand why it behaves this way, I would like that my script runs as a child process so I can type new commands only when it's done.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 and Terminator.
