Is there a keyboard combination I can use to signal to the Windows Console that Standard Input has finished? I'm trying to use a command line app that can accept input from the stdin which may be just typing at the console but when I type at the console I can't work out how to tell the app that I've finished my input so it actually then processes it.

I assume there's some key combination for this? (which may be app specific?)

<Control>+<Z> followed by <Enter> ends input.
