comment recurrent loss of wireless connectivity
Thanks, unfortunately the access point is in a work environment, and I do not have control over it.

Implementing these steps seems to help somewhat, but the connection still terminates periodically, requiring manual reactivation using the commands specified in the original post.

Thanks for the information. I will try disabling 802.11N for a day or so to confirm that the network termination problem has resolved.

comment remotely query text file associated with an instance of vi
@donothingsuccessfully. Thanks for your suggestion. I was reading a little about screen after seeing it mentioned in other posts. Can it be applied retroactively to an existing process or must the process be initiated with screen in order to take advantage of this facility?

@JosephR. That is an interesting idea. So you can deliver commands to vi but the \n newline seems not to register.

@JosephR. Wonderful solution to the first half of my question. In my case, the /proc/<pid>/fd/ folder contains the symlinks 0, 1, 2, and 4. The first three point to /dev/pts/3 and the last one points to the swap file. Many thanks.
