If you know the pid, simply killing it with whatever signal you want would be most efficient.

I am attempting to break a nodejs application that is running in a detached

But I am falling over at the first hurdle in just trying to send a break
command in the first place.

I am doing ` screen -S ser02 -X "^C" `
But when I do ` screen -r ser02 ` node is still running.
I tried a few other things such as ` ^A b ` thinking it would be using the
internal screen commands.

Can you check if this works?

screen -S ser02 -X 'stuff " "'

Or will this be the most efficient way?

screen -S ser02 -X quit
