ping tip: CTRL + \ (backslash)

Date September 28, 2009

I were checking one of the servers connectivity using ping, usually i use CTRL + \ (backslash) to send a quit signal for applications i run in terminal, but ping responded to the signal by showing ping status:

64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1253 ttl=47 time=433 ms
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1254 ttl=47 time=239 ms
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1255 ttl=47 time=359 ms
1255/1216 packets, 3% loss, min/avg/ewma/max = 221.050/393.449/357.675/977.157 ms
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1256 ttl=47 time=325 ms
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1257 ttl=47 time=411 ms
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1258 ttl=47 time=260 ms
64 bytes from x.x.x.x: icmp_seq=1259 ttl=47 time=275 ms

Pressing CTRL + \ while using ping will show ping status.
