Any way to tell when a SHELL execute is DONE?!?
Posted on 1998-09-28
I used the shell command to call pkunzip a file on my HD.
However, i found out that the SHELL command is asyncronous meaning that it runs the code lines just below the shell command call. If this occurs then my program will have problems.
Is there a way to tell when the SHELL's command call has finally finished (the pkunzip call is done)? I know the SHELL command returns a task ID but i haven't found a way to use this in helping me tell when the call is done.
