I tried to get the PID on the files called PID_Server


I try to get the PID of the last process on the files called PID_FILES.
But the command stands by on the output screen. I have to tape on ENTER to get the prompt and continue .

How may I simulate this action ( tape on ENTER ).

Please see this posting, Jimbo's response most of the way down.
