In otherword this just hangs at client:first server and blocks other port activity until
'server receives data. The no-wait option seems to do the same thing. Any ideas?
You can insert
p: wait [server otherports...]
To wait for one of several ports to have data. The value returned by 'wait tells
you which of the ports has data.
no-wait only has an effect on 'copy. Without no-wait 'copy only returns on
end-of-file. With no-wait 'copy returns immediately with whatever data is
