exiting program loops

how do you exit program loops ? the best example i can think of this that i came across was when i running netstat with the switch to continue updating - it keeps running, but i cant figure out how to exit. i tried everything i could think with the break key, and the only way i have been able to exit has been to restart with ctrl-alt-del.
sorry if this isnt clear, but i cant think of any other way to explain it.
any suggestions ?

You should be able to use ctrl+c or you can log in in another console and kill it:
ps aux|grep progname
(in the second column there's program PID)
kill PID
