How do you do a "control break" on KS 1.3?

Or whatever it's called (I forget)? Basically acts like Windows' Ctrl+C function.

The Feb '92 issue of Amiga Action claimed it was Ctrl + D (in their Wolfchild demo instructions), but that doesn't appear to work. I recall having a lot of trouble getting it to work on my real Amiga back in the day too.

Is it a typo, and I'm supposed to use a different key in the combination?

Send a message via MSN to smoorke
Try Ctrl-/ or is it ctrl-\ i don't remember wich it is but i do know it was close to the enter key on an uk keyboard.
Or does that only work with con-handler?

Ctrl-C breaks the current command
Ctrl-D breaks the currently running script after the current command
Ctrl-\ sends an EOF (end of file) to the input stream

Ctrl-C,D,E,F are signals sent to the program. The program may silently ignore them. There is no way to force a program to stop.
