I have a Linux IOC and I am using the main function from R3.14.1's example App. After the IOC is initialized iocsh left in "interactive mode" just like the App. Dev. Guide describes.

Unfortunately, "shutting down" the Linux IOC dangerously
easy.  It isn't necessary to type the "exit" command; Closing
the terminal window or pressing Ctrl-C do the job with even
less effort.

Is it possible to start the Linux IOC and have it run in the
background?  The Linux IOC seems to be missing the
"non-interacting mode" that all of the vxWorks IOCs have.


Thanks ahead of time,


Kevin Peterson


Just modify your 'main' so it sleeps forever rather than exiting after having iocsh execute the startup script
