2.8.1 Interrupting a Run [D] [D] This feature may not work properly on all systems, although it will always work on Windows systems.
The user can pause the run by pressing ctrl+c. This will bring up the FEBio prompt, and the user can enter a command. The FEBio prompt will also be shown when FEBio reaches a break point. See Section 2.4↑ for a list of available commands. Note that it may take a while before the FEBio prompt is displayed after the user requests a ctrl+c interruption. This may be because the program is in the middle of a call to the linear solver or another time-consuming part of the analysis procedure that cannot be interrupted.
