Bug Description


I think it would be an usability improvement if %cpaste would also accept Ctrl-D as a termination marker. It is standard speak for "end of stream", and quicker to type when you're pasting with your right hand using the mouse. It should be easily detectable by catching EOFError, I think.

Thanks for considering!

100% agreed, this had been in the back of my mind to do for a while.

Thanks a lot for filing the ticket, it's easy to do and I'll take care of it, it annoys me quite a bit too :)
