CTRL+BREAK to exit infinite loops

4 posts in this topic

Alright, so I have made a very simple script that clicks the mouse and waits in an infinite loop. I was planning on having the script run and when I was ready to end it, just use the keyboard shortcut to break out of it. No, its not the most eloquent way to code, but for a simple project like this one it makes the most sense. Anyway, I use a Mac keyboard, which of course doesn't have a "Break" key. I have investigated a couple options out there for remapping keys on my keyboard, to no avail (Sharpkeys and Auto Hot Key to be specific). So long story short, is there a way to change the hot key(s) associated with breaking out of an infinite loop? This is honestly something I expected to find on a preferences page I also expected to find (silly me, I have apparently been spoiled by eclipse all these years). If the answer is yes, it can be re-mapped in AutoIT, please provide instructions.

Thanks in advance.
