Signaling the completion of a windowed session

 Signaling the completion of a windowed session

I've been trying to kludge my way to a method of using long (HPFS)
filenames with DOS/Windows application data files.  It is easy enough
to write a Rexx routine that copies the input file to a temporary file
with a truncated filename, starts the associated application, and then
copies the revised file over the original file (with the long filename).

The problem with this is that starting the DOS/Win app actually
spawns a new session, and the Rexx routine does not wait for this session
to complete before copying over the original file.      

One solution to this problem is to insert a 'pause' command just before the
command to copy the edited file over the original file, but then I have
to contend with an open (and potentially dangerous) window{*filter*} around
on my desktop.

Does anybody have a better idea?  

Thanks in Advance,
