Doesn't Ctrl-C work for any program at all? It does not work for a lot
of interactive programs when they are expecting input. In those cases
you can usually press Ctrl-Z to stop the program, read the number in
brackets that bash prints, and use that in a kill command, like this:
[ press Ctrl-Z ]
+ Stopped xclock
$ kill %1
If you cannot kill a non-interactive program like xclock with Ctrl-C, I
don't know what is going on. Note however that specific programs can
choose to ignore Ctrl-C. I do not believe programs can choose to ignore
a stop signal (Ctrl-Z).
