On a graphical display, switching to the Emacs server is
straightforward---just select its (system-level) window. If you are
using a text-only terminal, there are two ways to switch between
@command{emacsclient}'s shell and the Emacs server: (i) run the Emacs
server and @command{emacsclient} on different virtual terminals, and
switch to the Emacs server's virtual terminal after calling
@command{emacsclient}; or (ii) call @command{emacsclient} from within
the Emacs server itself, using Shell mode (@pxref{Interactive Shell})
or Term mode (@pxref{Term Mode}); @code{emacsclient} blocks only the
