Have another flag, instead of "while true" have "while test "$RUNNING" = "1"" or similar.... set the flag beforehand, and set it to zero when you want to exit.

Or, depending on your script, you could really call exit, and if you had cleaning up to do, put it in a trap 0 function.

wow, I guess these 10 hour days are getting me, I missed the simple use of a while loop.

thanks so much porter

Code:
while test $RUN = 1
...
      "Exit") RUN=0
              clear
              break;;
