Ctrl-C when using command line history does nothing

Nov 6, 2014
If I start typing a command and press Ctrl-C the command is cancelled and is cleared form the command line prompt, as expected.

If I use "Up" to get to a previous command, pressing Ctrl-C does nothing (unless I edit the command in some way). Actually it does do something, but not immediately. TCC notices that the Ctrl-C is pressed, but doesn't actually cancel the command until another key is pressed.

Is there a way to convince TCC to cancel even commands brought up by the history functionality when Ctrl-C is pressed?

You're quite right. The behavior first showed up in TCC v21. I always use <Esc> to cancel a command line.
