The `thing' that stops a running process is a signal; ctrl-c is a way to
send that signal. However, that is dependent on the current binding
of keys; the binding is set by stty.
`stty -a' will show you all the current bindings. You apparently need
to set intr to ctrl-c, which you can do thus:
stty intr '^c'
