What is /dev/c1? If it is the same as /dev/console, forget about 'Ctrl-C'
there. It does not work (search the archives, there are messages dealing with
that exact problem).

Rather, you should use /dev/ttyS0 (or S1, S2, ...) where you will then be
able to 'Ctrl-C' your programs.

If none of these apply, tell us what /dev/c1 is (do a "ls -l /dev/c1").


( Hmmm, there seems to be no sed command in this mail! ;-) )
