Sigh. Whatever for? At least ctrl-C sends SIGINT. ctlr-D just flushes
the input stream, generating a zero length read if the stream is already
flushed, and a zero length read means EOF. But the program has to be running
_and_ reading its input to notice this.

In short, if "kill -9" doesn't get you anywhere, ctrl-D doesn't even
make into the waste of time category because it is not even a signal.

Well, if you didn't struggle so much, you wouldn't get rope burns.
