ctrlc 3.1.9

Easy Ctrl-C handler for Rust projects


Build Status Build status

A simple easy to use wrapper around Ctrl-C signal.


Example usage

use std::sync::atomic::{AtomicBool, Ordering};
use std::sync::Arc;

fn main() {
    let running = Arc::new(AtomicBool::new(true));
    let r = running.clone();
    ctrlc::set_handler(move || {
        r.store(false, Ordering::SeqCst);
    }).expect("Error setting Ctrl-C handler");
    println!("Waiting for Ctrl-C...");
    while running.load(Ordering::SeqCst) {}
    println!("Got it! Exiting...");

Try the example yourself

cargo build --examples && target/debug/examples/readme_example

Handling SIGTERM

Add CtrlC to Cargo.toml using termination feature and CtrlC will handle both SIGINT and SIGTERM.

ctrlc = { version = "3.0", features = ["termination"] }
