pterm & <Ctrl>+'S'

I have a text application that spits stuff to the screen very fast
indefinitely. I can’t seem to stop pterm with +‘S’. If I put
any delay in the loop, I.E.
delay( 10 );
I can pause the output of pterm just fine and restart it when I’m
ready.

I can always +‘C’ the progrm. That happens immediately.

Why can’t I pause the output of a pterm?

Your application is running higher priority that pterm can’t run
to process the ctrl-s ?

Pterm doesn’t understand the difference between Ctrl-C and Ctrl-S. If one
works and the other doesn’t, it must be because devc-pty treats them
differently.
