This is platform specific - in Windows ctrl+break. See "[U] 12 The Break key" for more details.

If -more- is set on, you can also press "q" when "--more--" is displayed to quit. See "[U] 10 -more- conditions".

Dear All,
Perhaps my question is trivial, but is there a way to abort a stata command? 
I have in mind situations where you're dealing with a very large dataset, 
say 80,000 observations, and you mistakenly simply give the command "list". 
It would obviously be irritating just waiting for stata to finish executing 
the command. It's even worse if "more" has not been set off. I'll appreciate 
your answers. Thank you very much.

Louis
