Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
I want to know if it’s possible to catch a Control-C in python in the following manner:
if input != contr-c: #DO THINGS else: #quit
I’ve read up on stuff with
except KeyboardInterrupt but they’re not working for me.
Consider reading this page about handling exceptions.. It should help.
As @abarnert has said, do
try: # DO THINGS except KeyboardInterrupt: # quit sys.exit()
You can also use the built in
exit() function, but as @eryksun pointed out,
sys.exit is more reliable.
From your comments, it sounds like your only problem with
except KeyboardInterrupt: is that you don’t know how to make it exit when you get that interrupt.
If so, that’s simple:
import sys try: user_input = input() except KeyboardInterrupt: sys.exit(0)
