That was a problem I had back when I was teaching Xenix operations to
Tandy customers -- how to connect some control codes to the real world.
My usual mnemonic for my students was "Ctrl-S meand stop, Ctrl-Q means
Qontinue. (If only the ancients had swapped the functions of Ctrl-C
and Ctrl-Q, in which it would have been a simple Continue or Quit --
much easier for brain damaged students to remember).
