General Problems

It's not possible to list (or even think of) every possible situation in which something might go wrong. If your error isn't mentioned below, use the ideas in this section. First, press the [CTRL-D] key. That tells a program that's trying to read from your terminal that there is no more input. If that doesn't work, press [CTRL-C] which will cause most programs to abort. If you still haven't been able to get things back to normal, press [CTRL-Z]. If you then get the normal system prompt, type "kill %". That will kill off the job you just suspended. If nothing works, contact a consultant.
