Ctrl-C handling while piping


This is not a problem as I have checked it out.
But I thought I would run it past TCC/4NT experts

There is a command line version of WinZIP called wzzip and wzunzip that I use. And they do support paging of results. Nevertheless, if I do

WZZIP -vb B200201??.S??.ZIP | MORE

then I see results per page. Both are Win32 console programs.

(i) If I do Ctrl-Break at a --More-- prompt, it quits and I am back to a TCC prompt
(ii) If I do Ctrl-C at a --More-- prompt, nothing happens and at that point it is impossible to recover, it never quits and a subsequent Ctrl-Break does nothing. It is locked solid and only terminating the process recovers.

I have tested this under CMD.EXE and it does exactly the same thing, Ctrl-Break is fine and Ctrl-C is not. So TCC is in good company :)

As said, it is not a problem as Ctrl-Break is available.
Has anyone seen this or can shed more information?
