comment Is there an analog of Bash's Ctrl+Z & fg in Powershell?
Yes you're right, sorry. Well, if the job is something like "less", it finishes immediately after it is created, and the "additional output" can be retrieved only the first time. So it's nothing like doing "fg".

It has other problems, too: 1) Receive-Job marks the job as Complete, so one can do it only once. 2) When invoked, it just spits out whatever the job has produced, so no "switching to" less, for example.

however this means that I have to think ahead and start everything as a background process, which isn't as nice as Ctrl+Z on whatever is running right now

Strange thing, I don't have Start-PSJob in my Powershell. $host.Version.Major yields 2; doesn't that mean I have Powershell 2? I have pscx installed, maybe it gets in the way?
