Hello Everyone,

I've been messing around with the little utilities from the 
<epics>/share/src/toolsComm/ca directory and I've noticed that when I:

	caget <recordname>

If the recordname exists or does not exist the caget process will not die.
The shell returns the prompt to me, but if I look at the process table, there
caget sits.  

So I wrote my own caget which does the following:

	ca_task_initialize()
	ca_search()
	ca_pend_io()
	ca_get()
	ca_clear_channel()
	ca_task_exit()

and I see the same behavior.  

Has anyone else seen this?

Thanks,

-Paul
