Description (partial)


When using the EEM applet "gets" function, hitting CTRL-C does not return the user input buffer, and it stays full, including the CTRL-C character. Any subsequent "gets" calls does not wait for user input, but breaks due to the CTRL-C in the input buffer.


Using EEM "gets" and user hits CTRL-C on input request.
