OPSER is a program designed to run up to  14  jobs  from  1  terminal.
Each job run by OPSER is called a subjob.  Text is sent to the subjobs
using commands of the form:


Where <subjob> specifies the subjob  number  or  name.   For  complete
instructions on OPSER see the User Utilities Manual.


^A      Send a ^C (control-C) to the subjob.
^B      Send a ^O (control-O) to the subjob.
^E      Send an escape to the subjob.
