But bc is an interactive calculator thing, just like running python gives
you an interactive python shell. ^C for bc wouldn't make a lot of sense.

yum is a system admin tool that you use to update your box, it's in the
same category as top, find, ps, rpm, etc.

All of those exit cleanly when you type ^C.
