in thread How can a user pause a running script?

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.
