[S] prevention of releasing BATCH mode p

Does anyone know if it is possible to use Splus BATCH in UNIX
in such a way that the process does NOT automatically release
itself ? By that I mean that if I enter
Splus BATCH infile outfile
at the command line it will not return a prompt until it has
finished execution.

[ It seems to me that this should happen by default in Unix,
since I could always add "&" to release the process if required.]

Thank you for any assistance or comments (e.g. why this is a silly idea !),

Andrew
