Hi,

If i press attention (ATTN) key while a REXX PGM is running, how can i handle it in program. i mean if i want to call a routine when ATTN key is pressed is there any option. What i know of is when a ATTN key is pressed i get a TSO message on screen that says :
"ENTER HI TO END, A NULL LINE TO CONTINUE, OR AN IMMEDIATE COMMAND +"

The options available are:

HI - to terminate.
HT - halt typing
RT - resume typing
TS - trace start
TE - trace end

i want to programtically handle the ATTN key..

Thanks ans Regards,
Milo.

The only way I know is to code an Attention Handling Exit Routine. For more info, please refer to the fine manual.
