KeyboardInterrupt: user interrupts the program by pressing Ctrl+C, python


KeyboardInterrupt is an error which occurs when a user interrupts a running program by pressing Ctrl+C. This error is specific for Python programs.

Reason of error

This error occurs when the user wants to terminate the program, but the program does not have the capability to terminate itself.

Example code

def main():
while True:
print("Hello World")

if __name__=="__main__":

Solution to solve issue

To solve this issue, the program should be able to terminate itself. This can be done by using the try-except statement. This statement catches the KeyboardInterrupt error and allows the program to terminate itself.
