When using terminal sometimes you need to break the program. Sometimes you press Ctrl-c sometimes Ctrl-x and sometimes Ctrl-z
In some circumstances, it might simply be closing a quote or pressing enter a few times there are even instances when Ctrl-d will work.
So when I get stuck, like an idiot, I start mashing those keys like an idiot in the hope that the process will quit. In 95% of the cases it works and when I get desperate I just close the terminal and that works 100% of the time. I'm sure there is a logical reason for the various states due to the program being in a particular state but all I want to do is just break the application and return to the bash prompt.
Is there a super key that will break the process without having to mash these 4 magic keys in the hope that the application will terminate?
