I believe the command you are looking for is "wait", it's a builtin
command of bash (and probably many other shells):
Wait for the specified process and return its termination sta-
tus. n may be a process ID or a job specification; if a job
spec is given, all processes in that job's pipeline are waited
for. If n is not given, all currently active child processes
are waited for, and the return status is zero. If n specifies a
non-existent process or job, the return status is 127. Other-
wise, the return status is the exit status of the last process
or job waited for.
