Name

Break

Format

Break <process> [ALL|C|D|E|F]

Synopsis

PROCESS/N,PORT,NAME/K,ALL/S,C/S,D/S,E/S,F/S

Function

BREAK sends one or more signals to a CLI process.
The argument PROCESS specifies the numeric ID of the CLI process that
you wish to send the signal to. The STATUS command will list all currently
running CLI processes along with ther ID.
You can also specify a public port name and send signal's to the
port's task.

You can send all signals at once via option ALL or any combination of the
flags CTRL-C, CTRL-D, CTRL-E and CTRL-F by their respective options.
When only the CLI process ID is specified the CTRL-C signal will be sent.

The effect of using the BREAK command is the same as selecting
the console window of a process and pressing the relevant key
combination.

The normal meaning of the keys is:
    CTRL-C      -       Halt a process
    CTRL-D      -       Halt a shell script
    CTRL-E      -       Close a process' window
    CTRL-F      -       Make active the process' window

Not all programs respond to these signals, however most should
respond to CTRL-C.

Example

1.SYS:> BREAK 1

    Send the CTRL-C signal to the process numbered 1.

1.SYS:> BREAK 4 E

    Send the CTRL-E signal to the process numbered 4.

1.SYS:> BREAK NAME c:dhcpclient

    Send the CTRL-C signal to the process named "c:dhcpclient".
