I am running a long program in a remote machine, and I want to stop it, but my problem is that if I use the kill command then the program will exit without saving results. Normally what I do to finish the program is using ctrl c and in that case the program saves the results, but right now I am not in the machine that is running the session so I cannot do ctrl c.
My question is: is there any way to do in a remote way the equivalent of ctrl c?.
kill -SIGINT processPIDHere
Basically Ctrl C sends the
SIGINT (interrupt) signal while kill sends the
SIGTERM (termination) signal by default unless you specify the signal to send.
