That would be fantastic, thank you.

My muscle memory comes more from Matlab than from Emacs so I am more used to machine-gunning CTRL-C for ages rather than making 1 or 2 or 3 clean shots ;)

This behavior was copied from a similar feature in Emacs:

https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/emacs.html#Emergency-Escape

I see now that Emacs only enables the feature for text terminals. We could at least do that.

Guys, thank you very much for the recent bug fix for CTRL-C closing out the desktop (#49609). Really nice sleuthing.

I have one request for CTRL-C behaviour. Would it be possible to prevent the default behaviour of aborting out of octave on the 3rd CTRL-C? Sometimes you want to abandon a long calculation and oops, pressed it too many times, the octave processes is killed.

One can always kill the octave process from the OS if necessary, but usually (in fact, always) I do not want to abort octave using CTRL-C.

Can it be made an option for CTRL-C to return just to the octave prompt regardless of number of keypresses?
