'history' is not the builtin command in this case. 'history' is a normal file containing awk code (see my first post).  I named it history because it does some calculations and shows the 10 most used commands. The file is expecting some input from a command (pipe) like the 'history' builtin command.

Wait a second.  You're not running the `history' builtin.  What does
`./history' do?  It's the process that's being stopped for tty input.
