asked on

After invoking process and placing in background, I am not returned to a prompt.

I have a script which executes a program and places it in the background: /some/path/to/executable -options &

Though I have placed the executable in the background, it does not drop me at the command prompt once it is started.  I have to hit enter to return back to a prompt.  

What am I missing?
