When I do this, it just returns to the command prompt. No errors

search string. What am I doing wrong?
We are on 7.1.
Probably just need to wait long enough for the data to appear at
STDOUT. I am unsure why the effect for the request seems to be
asynchronous, as compared\contrasted with the effect seen on
earlier releases. I only recently saw the effect, and had not
looked into whether that outcome might be a defect, or not.
Chuck, you may have discovered the issue.
I tried the command that Scott had posted for searching the contents
of the files and it worked. I actually wanted to search recursively,
so I modified the statement to be
'find . -type f | xargs grep -r CRMUPDDTE'
to recursively search the sub directories. It returned to
the QSHELL prompt right away. Then, I tried to press F3 to exit
QSHELL and now my session is hung. I assume it is running the search
based on what Chuck mentioned. There are many files to search.
I'm surprised it returns to the QSHELL prompt so quickly. How are
you supposed to know it is doing something? <<SNIP>>
