An interesting property of all three of these animals is that shouting 'Ctrl-C' at them causes them to stop in their tracks. Jul 18 '05 #3

An interesting property of all three of these animals is that shouting 'Ctrl-C' at them causes them to stop in their tracks. Unless of course, any of the animals are looking rather Qt on a given day. Then they'll only acknowledge that you shouted 'Ctrl-C' when you either close them in a cage or forcefully kill them. :-) Jul 18 '05 #4

Depends on how you are interacting with your turtle. From the interactive interpreter, you could use Ctrl-C. Also, you might want to try the turtle ..er penguin graphics module in pygsear: http://www.nongnu.org/pygsear/ With that one you can use the Esc key to break from a loop. Jul 18 '05 #5
