Running processes in the background

Forums: 

Hello.

I know how to run a process in the background:

bigprocess &

Now I get the pid of the process.

After a while I want to view the output of the program.

How can I do that?

Furthermore, how can I send an open process to the background?

Thank you.

Cheers.
