"Terminate batch job (Y/N)" amidst a batch job

Posted by vinzy1983 (vinzy1983), 11 October 2006

I am running a batch file to run many perl scripts against an exe with rational coverage using a proprietary tool.
The problem is somewhere inbetween the run the batch job is terminating after getting the prompt "Terminate batch job (Y/N)". This can be seen from the log file to which i have 'tee'd the output of batch file. The batch job is run in non-interactive mode and i have not sent ^C to stop this job!! The prompt is coming on it's own and i am not able to find out why. Please help me in solving this issue.

You're talking a batch job on a Unix / Linux box are you?   I guess you are as you're talking "tee".   But batch is not an interactive tool.    Which shell are you using?    Can you post us some sample batch code that causes the problem and a note of which o/s.   Then I might be able to help; I'm confused by the question at the moment, I'm afraid!
