Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Like most command prompts that i am aware of, if you enter a wrong cmd you should remain at the prompt but will receive an error similiar to QSH’s “Error found searching for command xxxx”. Unless your session exited or disconnected?

SysReq, 2, Enter

The program you ran is expecting input. Since you didn’t provide it with any, it has defaulted to receiving input from the ‘standard input’ device (your terminal). You can’t use the normal *nix methods to end that, but the normal OS/400 ‘end previous request’ works just fine if you are using qshell interactively.

    ...rollback to the command prompt... What "command prompt" are you referring to? Qshell doesn't "prompt" commands. If you run a series of Qshell utilities (commands), your Qshell session screen will scroll off the top. You can page forward and backward. You can place your cursor on a previous Qshell command and press <F9> to bring it down to the Qshell command line. But I'm not sure what you mean by "command prompt". Tom

    hi Tom, I am sorry, it is command line on which we enter shell commands but the results are shown in the top half. Now I entered a wrong command for eg, Cat abc.file but i want to give another file name or misspelt....it goes there and says the file not found errorand displays again the $.But i used just "cat" it came up with >cat and then whatever i type it repeats that and keeps the > symbol prefix.So no $ prompt is shown.Now i want to get that sybol back so i can continue with other commands.
