Question Shell programers - HELP!!!

A guy here at work is working on a 4GL script (Unix system) that reads an input file. Based on the indicator flag (first field) he sends the output to a named pipe for loading into a certain database table. The problem is when a pipe has no records, the process just sleeps forever (the indicator flag is the same for all records, so only 1 pipe gets any input). How the heck do we tell it the other pipe does not need to get called. N E idea's? I've never had to write anything like that before, so I am stumped, and I do not know 4GL worth a flip.
