How to interrupt or cancel cli output

I cannot find how to cancel or interrupt the cli output.  Specifically the " show config running" command.

I would have bet the house that I'd tried that before and it didn't work.  But it did work now.

So, you changed the output so that it does not give you the prompt to continue at the end of the page and when it is outputting to the screen you cannot stop it? 

And Control+C does not stop it?

@vnt90,

If the standard Control+C doesn't interrupt the output you'll need to post what application you are actually using to get into the CLI. Some don't behave well with Control+C and require a different keystroke, but that will work for 98% of them out there. 

So I am entering the command " show config running"  and Control C does not interrupt or stop the command from continuing to display with each space bar depression.  I am using SecureCRT and SSH'd into the device.

 

thnks in advance

ctrl-c will interrupt any 'running' output (if you're running "show system resources follow" or if you disabled cli page breaks etc.)

when you are looking at an output with page breaks (show config, less mp-log ms.log, ....) you can escape out by pressing the letter Q
