By default, ^c causes a runtime system to abort its current
computation and to restart with the goal
as if the built-in predicate
abort/0 had been called. This
behavior can be modified from C code by means of the system
signal(2). Such modification is done in exactly the same way
as under a Development System; see the Reference Pages for
- In Windows 95/98, ^C interrupt handling only works in windowed executables, and only when waiting for input.
- In statically linked executables running under Windows NT, ^C interrupt handling only works when waiting for input.
