Fix Python – Stopping python using ctrl+c


Asked By – jonatron

I have a python script that uses threads and makes lots of HTTP requests. I think what’s happening is that while a HTTP request (using urllib2) is reading, it’s blocking and not responding to CtrlC to stop the program. Is there any way around this?

Now we will see solution for issue: Stopping python using ctrl+c


On Windows, the only sure way is to use CtrlBreak. Stops every python script instantly!

(Note that on some keyboards, “Break” is labeled as “Pause”.)
