/FG [-nsq<>] [world]

Bring the socket associated with world into the foreground. The world must already be connected with the /connect command. Any lines that arrived while the socket was in the background will be displayed, unless the -q option is given.

/fg Options:

no socket: put all sockets in the background.
suppress error messages.
previous socket in cycle.
next socket in cycle.
quiet: don't display lines that were buffered while the socket was in the background.

/fg returns 0 on failure, nonzero otherwise.

If successful, /fg invokes the WORLD hook, which by default echoes "---- World world ----" or "---- No world ----".

/bg puts all sockets in the background, and is equivalent to /fg -n.
