If I use the command
copy con fred.txt
then I can type in a stream of characters, but Ctrl.Z
does not end the stream! Nor does Ctrl.C or
Ctrl.Break.

To be MS-DOS compatible, these should end file and
return to the command prompt.

    You need to update your kernel. Then this will work.

    Press Ctrl-Z - standart EOF character
