Subject: Newbie question: What is EOF for stdin?
First of all I apologize if this was answered somewhere else, but I
didn't find it. I tried searching Google, the archives
and the user guide, but none of these had the answer.
My question is (I think) simple: what is the shell key combination for
I am running a program - CRM114 - that was compiled for Windows, but it
is in my cygwin path (/usr/bin). This program expects me to type in
some text and, when I'm ready for CRM114 to process it I am supposed to
hit the EOF keyboard combination. I tried ^D (control D) but this
didn't seem to work. Should ^D work? Is there something else I can try
to use for EOF?
