You were so close. I started playing around with the "stuff" command you recommended and started to see a pattern forming. I eventually came to the idea of removed the single quotes around your suggestion 'stuff " "' and just used -X stuff "^C" and it worked. 

Thank you. I got it working now with -X stuff "^C"
No need to mess around with PID and process killing now. 

Where is this kind of usage (stuff ^X) documented? I did not found it in screen manual.


Thank you everyone for your help.

I am attempting to break a nodejs application that is running in a detached
screen. (From another screen nodejs application).

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 " "'
