In zsh when I try and press CTRL-C nothing happens (it works fine in bash) when I run bindkey | grep \\^C I get "^C" Applications so something must've happened... how do I bind ^-C to the default?

What are you trying to do with Ctrl-c? What does stty -a show (with respect to intr and ^C (in a freshly started zsh session)? – Dennis Williamson Mar 5 '11 at 1:30
go to a new line in the shell, and intr = ^C; – errorhandler Mar 5 '11 at 2:09

stty sane is usually a good starting place; outside of the zsh command line editor, it's a function of the terminal driver.

now bindkey | grep \\^C returns nothing... – errorhandler Mar 5 '11 at 0:27
