The state of threads
Threads can be in one of three different states:
commands within the thread are being executed in sequence
system and window threads can be suspended until a specified
condition is satisfied, or the thread receives a signal
the thread is waiting for a program to run.
While waiting, it cannot receive any signals until the
thread is unblocked.
A thread is also blocked by a
command, by internal commands such as
that wait for the user, and by running a pipeline.
