SQL*Plus Overwrites Unix Command Signal Int ( KiLl -2 ) Trap in Calling Script
(Doc ID 341412.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 14, 2017
Applies to:SQL*Plus - Version: 188.8.131.52
This problem can occur on any platform.
Sqlplus is ignoring the trap to stop CTRL-C from ending sqlplus.
There are 2 scripts:
One that starts sqlplus:
sqlplus -s user/password <
One that calls this script and has delays:
trap "break" INT
When runPlusTest is called, a CTRL-C kills the sqlplus started withing myPlusTest
However, if myTest was using a OS command, that would ignore the Ctrl-C and continue processing.
