[R] interrupt in Linux

Mon Jun 14 22:38:03 CEST 2004


control-c seems to interrupt loops, but not the display of enormous objects, as when I typed the name of a several-hundred megabyte list. Is there a way to interrupt that?

control-D does not interrupt R, but kills the entire R process.

Are you sure that R won't interrupt?  Perhaps you are in some C
code that doesn't pay attention to the interrupt.

I have SuSe and control-C works on all of the versions of R that
I've tried.
