[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\Break]
Format: BREAK <process> [ALL|C|D|E|F]
Template: PROCESS/A/N, ALL/S, C/S, D/S, E/S, F/S
Purpose: To set attention flags in the specified process.
BREAK sets the specified attention flags in the <process> indicated. Use the
STATUS command to display the currrent process numbers. C sets the Ctrl+C
flag, D sets the Ctrl+D flag, and so on. ALL sets all the flags from Ctrl+C
to Ctrl+F. By default, only the Ctrl+C flag is set.
The action of BREAK is identical to selecting the relevant process by
clicking in its window and pressing the appropriate Ctrl+key combination(s).
Ctrl+C is used as the default for sending a BREAK signal to halt a process.
A process that has been aborted this way will display ***BREAK in the Shell
window. Ctrl+D is used to halt execution of a script file. Use the STATUS
command to display the current process numbers.
Ctrl+F is used by programs that open windows. Sending these programs a
Ctrl+F signal will cause them to activate their window and bring it to the
front of all windows. Not all programs respond to Ctrl+F.
1> BREAK 7
Sets the Ctrl+C attention flag of process 7. This is identical to selecting
process 7 and pressing Ctrl+C.
1> BREAK 5 D
Sets the Ctrl+D attention flag of process 5.
