Can't stop webrick with ctrl-c or ctrl-d on linux host

Hi All

I have setup a new dev system running LinuxMint 9 (Ubuntu 10.4).
Running
ruby 1.9.2, rails 3.0, RVM etc.

One issue I have run into is that I can’t stop webrick with ctrl+c or
ctrl+d
and killing the terminal always leaves a stranded ruby process.

Has anybody else run into this? Btw, webrick gets started by running
“rails
s” in.

Also, ctrl+c works fine to stop a standalone ruby or python apps. I can
also
exit irb with ctrl+d fine.

Anyhow, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Raf

use ctrl + z

Thanks, that ACTUALLY worked :wink:

The question is why does ctrl+z work and ctrl+c not?

Spoke too soon. Ctrl+z stops the server script but the ruby process that
listens on 3000 hangs around. After using ctrl+z, I can’t restart the
server
because the default port is still in use.

Right – because C-z only suspends the process and does not kill it.
When you hit C-z, you will see a message that begins like
[1]+ Stopped

The number in brackets is the job number. To kill the process, type
kill -9 %{JOB}
at the shell prompt, where {JOB} is the job number – so in this
example, it would be kill -9 %1 .

I’ve never seen this with Webrick, but sometimes Autospec responds to
C-z and not to C-c. The method I just described is useful.

If any of this is mysterious to you, please read a little about how
processes work on *nix.

Ok, I started experimenting with different key combinations and it seems
that ctrl+alt+c does the trick.
