|Why doesn’t CTRL-C interrupt my programs?
Posted: 16 Dec 01
From http://pcunix.com/SCOFAQ/scotec6.html#delkey :
Because, by default, SCO systems set interrupt to the DELETE key, not CTRL-C.If you find that unbearable, you can easily change it; for example,
stty intr ^C
will change your interrupt on Bourne or Korn shells. In this example, you actually type CTRL-C; if you are in vi adding it to your .profile, type CTRL-V and then CTRL-C
This can be added to .profile (or whatever startup file your shell uses) or to /etc/profile.
