Hi there!

Is it possible to make a program to run on background?
I'm playing with fork but i can't get it to work.
I want the program to work on both, unix and windows...

If someone could give me an example of... for example, a program that
goes to background (so i get the $ on my promp), and on the background
it counts from 1 to 2000
(of course it is going to finish on a millisecond, but it just as an
example :)

Thank you
Joaquin Grech
