General :: Shell Command Equivalent To (Ctrl+C) To Exit From A Process?

Apr 1, 2011

I write a script to read a file which is something like a pipe (or) queue , which shows the running status.In normal case, if i open this file with cat command, i have to use ctrl+c to exit this . What command shall i use to do the same inside a shell script ? I have tried ^C in my script , but it does not exit the process.

Ubuntu Servers :: Writing Init Script - Signals To Kill The Process (Ctrl-C) From A Bash Script And Exit Dtach (Ctrl-`)

Dec 5, 2010

I'm trying to write a init.d script to daemonise a sagemath notebook server. Here's what I've done so far, I've copied /etc/init.d/single for the structure, and tried to use dtach to provide a handle to access the process. However, my main problem is issuing the signals to kill the process (Ctrl-C) from a bash script and exit dtach (Ctrl-`)

General :: Debugger For Shell Script - Get Rid Of Multiple Exit Command ?

Jun 14, 2010

My two doubts:

(i) In office i open many terminal windows when i start my day and in each terminal i keep on login as different users many times in a day to do some task, by the end of the day when i need to exit from all terminals in a safeway instead of directly closing it i need to execute exit command or CTRL+D many times to close a single terminal safely.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Exit TTY Even With Ctrl+Alt+F7 On 10.10

Nov 29, 2010

Here I was, having problems with the resolution then I stopped the X server as was instructed at the tutorial. I followed it all then rebooted. But I found that even after reboot, I'm still stuck with TTY. I clicked Ctrl Alt F7 but still it's a terminal and it did not return to the GUI or the normal desktop. What will I do to exit it? It's a good thing I have windows vista along with it or else I'll now have a computer that I can't use outside the terminal.

As nothingspecial said, I should place the link of the tutorial I was following: [URL]

General :: What To Do When Ctrl-c Can't Kill Process?

Feb 9, 2011

Ctrl-c doesn't always work to kill the current process (for instance, if that process is busy in certain network operations). In that case, you just see "^C" by your cursor, and can't do much else.What's the easiest way to force that process to die now without losing my terminal?

Summary of answers below:Usually, you can Ctrl-z to put the process to sleep, and then do "kill -9 process-pid", where you find the process's pid with 'ps' and other tools.On Bash (and possibly other shells) you can do "kill -9 %1" (or '%N' in general) which is easier. If Ctrl-z doesn't work, you'll have to open another terminal and kill from there.

General :: Find The Equivalent Command Of A Gui Operation?

Apr 12, 2010

We often require to find an equivalent text command for any GUI operation. Just as an example we click on a folder (say ABC) from the current directory in order to see the contents of that directory. The equivalent command for it to happen would be->

cd ABC ls Now the thing is that we often don't know what that equivalent command will be. So I want to know that is there any way out to find it. What I want to do is that I shall perform any operation using mouse in the GUI mode(whatever operation it could be) and then I can see a log file to see what I actually did last(rather what the command would have been if I have worked in the text mode)...

General :: Access Command-line Tty1 With Ctrl-Alt-F1?

Jun 14, 2011

I have Red Hat 5.4, and I'm trying to log in using tty1 by pressing Ctrl-Shift-F1. I get to the text login screen, my banner displays, but when I try to log in as root, the banner just displays again and it asks me to log in.

It does not say that my password is incorrect, just asks me log in as if the previous exchange never happened. I have added tty1 to /etc/securetty, and all the other tty's and vc/1, vc/2, an attempt to get something to work. I recently started using PAM for password authentication, and the line is set correctly in /etc/pam.d/login. Any idea why I can't log in? Did I miss something I have to add?

Programming :: Gracefully Exit A Background Process?

Jun 7, 2011

I am using a program that reads in data from a serial port and then sends that data out over a TCP connection. The problem I'm having is that the only way I know to exit the program is to do a 'kill PID', but doing this means the program doesn't go through the motions of closing the TCP connection properly so I have to wait some random period of time for the port to free itself or else when I try to start it back up it tells me that it can't bind to the specified port.The general structure of the program is as follows

int main(){
// initialize some stuff
