Default Ctrl-D and Ctrl-C sometimes dose not work

I use FreeBSD* 7 and ZSH for SHELL , sometimes when I press Ctrl-D and Ctrl-C , these commands dose not work for example when I* use python and want exit python when I press Ctrl-D I can not exit it , or when I type

Code:
man rtorrent
when I press Ctrl-C I can not exit it.

Programmers designed such applications to ignore ctrl-c, ie ctrl-c can do something completly different ....

And this is not directly related to zsh or to FreeBSD in any way.

Every manpage should be possible to exit with ctrl+c. Doesn't depend on what different programmers ignore.
But I have no clue what's wrong.

Wrong, by default, man pager viewer is GNU less - and guess what, GNU less ignore ctrl-c. You can configure your own xzy viewer if you like.

I don't know about zsh, but with ksh I send a ^Z and then get the pid of the background processes like so:

Code:
$ top &         
[1] 7251
$ kill -KILL `echo $!`
kill -KILL `echo $!`
[1] + Killed               top
$
A little ugly bit it works... and according to this, zsh works the same way.

Perhaps you chose the wrong keymap then, learn to clarify your questions..

what is output of following command:
# echo $PAGER
if it is not something with 'more' ctrl-c will not exit program.

That is just for man pages, for python and others I dont belive you that ctrl-c had ever worked differently.

From less(1):

Code:
       -K or --quit-on-intr
              Causes less to exit  immediately  when  an  interrupt  character
              (usually  ^C) is typed.  Normally, an interrupt character causes
              less to stop whatever it is doing  and  return  to  its  command
              prompt.   Note  that  use  of this option makes it impossible to
              return to the command prompt from the "F" command.
