in thread How can a user pause a running script?

Personally I hate doing that, cos you hit ctrl+s to freeze the screen, then when you hit ctrl+q again your window gets flooded with stuff if there's more than one page meaning you miss all the other data.

    That's why I prefer ctrl-Z, as it actually stops the running of the program and gives back the command prompt. Since you get the command prompt back, it seems like a better solution anyway; the user can look at the output files and then deside to "fg" the program to let it continue.
