I've googled for it but failed to found an answer. I would like to remap my interrupt signal key from ^C to or Delete, what would be the code for it? For example:

stty intr "ESC code"

And back:

stty intr ^C

    maybe Delete would be better than Escape? – 719016 Jul 14 '11 at 9:48

You don't want to do this. The character sequence generated by Esc is also used by the extended keys on the keyboard, so each keypress will be like pressing CtrlC followed by some random characters.

stty intr \033

This works somewhat, but since \033/Escape is used as, well, escape character, it'll break other stuff.

  • Maybe not. It would drive you nuts editing the command line! – Andy Lee Robinson Jul 27 '11 at 15:37
