We are running a character mode application written in Oracle forms using hand held terminals. These hand held terminals simulate vt220.

Since there devices are connected using radio frequncy netweok, sometimes the commections are lost. The dropped connections leave the oracle form session active on the server.

I remember there used to be a CATCH TERM (or something like that) variable, which when set would cleanup any session which has been dropped.

Does anybody know the syntax / working of the environment variable.
