    How to stop a command or start over, in a terminal


    I asked how to start over in a terminal before and I got an answer and it works but... The command I use now is "Ctrl + \" and like I said it works but after the command stops and I'm back at the prompt anything I enter, type, whatever, after that makes no sign. If I type in cd /. . . it's invisible.

    Does anybody know how to start over in a terminal and then be able to see what you type.

    Thanks,

    have you tried using control C?
    Ctrl C stops most programs.
