Thank you for this simple program. It helped me begin to answer a question I had previously posted about trapping "Ctl-C". (see thread: Jythonc Question...)

It turns out that when a Python program is frozen with jythonc, "Ctl-C" will throw an "EOFError" instead of a "KeyboardError".

Test code:

  raw_input("\nEnter or Ctl-C")
except EOFError:
  print "\n\nKeyboardInterrrupt TRAPPED!"
  print "\nKeyboardInterrrupt NOT TRAPPED!"

You can get the thrown execption from sys.exc_info() like this:

  raise SomeException
  type, value, traceback = sys.exc_info()
