Pariemacs?  Yes, normally it waits for gp to return to the prompt, which
is good for typeahead.  The easiest is to C-g to stop waiting, in which
case gp continues and you do other things in emacs.  If you want to
interrupt gp then C-c in its buffer (same as control-C outside emacs).

I've got a diff I've been meaning to propose to Olivier to display gp
output as it arrives, so you see progress while emacs waits.  I've found
it good for a loop of prints taking a few seconds.  For a few minutes
you'd still want to C-g out and let gp go on.

"Les Amants du Pont Neuf" -- a fine sequel to Les Amants du Pont Huit.
