'PG' ?   You mean, I think, 'pg'

| Please let me know if you know how to solve the problem.

Did /dev/tty disappear?

If so, TA 106213 tells you how to re-create it.

And after you fix the problem, become a happier camper by renouncing the
use of pg or more, and using the current version of less instead.

| Many thanks to you the problem solved.  The dev/tty intery had 600 permision
| where as should have been
| 666.  About less, where I could get the latest version of less to work on
| SCO.  I would'nt mind to try it.

The latest version is # 346, and the home page for it is:
