I disagree - All programs should immediately terminate upon "Ctrl-C".
Switching to a different mirror should be done by any arbitrary key.
Someone please fix emacs to terminate immediately on ctrl-C then ;)

Very large numbers of programs override ^C to be an internal interrupt,
including things like ftp. Others specifically ignore it (try using ssh
without that)

I think we can accept such weirdness of some applications.

Most people will understand WHY ^c is overriden in ssh for example.

For me after 10 years of linux experience it was great mistery why a hell
does yum override ^c.

There is no clear reason for it to behave like that.

My suggestion ?
^m and a startup message like:

"If you want to switch from one mirror to another press CTRL+M"

regards


That would probably also help the fact, that (last i checked) ^C does switch mirrors, but it also prevents anything useful from happening at the end of the download process. I.e. yum -y update would download packages, ^C cause it to switch mirrors and keep downloading, but the expected update at the end of the download is skipped.
