Yes, eshell definitely needs more documentation.

But simple usage should be, well, simple.  For instance, to find a
word in a file, type

    grep word file.txt

at the shell prompt, just like you would with another shell.

The result will be quite different, though ;-)  That is the beauty
about eshell...

Hm.  If C-c C-c (which is like Ctrl-C in a "normal" shell) doesn't
stop the program, then perhaps C-c C-z (which is like Ctrl-Z in a
"normal" shell) can interrupt it.  After C-c C-z, you can use the
usual "kill %1" thing to kill the process.

Does this help?
