[IPython-User] Interrupting current calculation in an ipython embedded in a Qt gui app
Tue Dec 4 16:53:07 CST 2012
Actually, I got a reasonable solution: ctrl-c in the console window (not
the qtconsole) that pops up in Windows when starting a GUI (with
python.exe, not pythonw.exe) does what I want. Not optimal but good enough
