Re: SHELL mode and ability to CTRL C
By: Mewcenary to All on Sat Mar 05 2022 08:07 pm
When using SHELL mode in the Sysop menu, is it possible for CTRL C
to be passed through?
As an example, I was using SHELL mode to do something like this:
$ tail -f /var/log/syslog
Ctrl-C is passed-through. You can see this by running showkey on
$ showkey -a
Press any keys - Ctrl-D will terminate this program
^C 3 0003 0x03
This has the unfortunate consequence of then getting 'stuck' with
no way to get back to the BBS, other than hanging up the session
and calling back.
Yeah, there's something else at play there. Like, the program is
expecting a signal and not actually looking for a Ctrl-C character.
So the enhancement you seek in Synchronet is likely the opposite of
what you asking for, i.e. don't pass-through the Ctrl-C (in some configurations for some programs) but rather send a signal (SIGINT
likely) to the process when the user sends a Ctrl-C character.
