EOT in PHP[edit]

I just removed the following:

EOT is also used within the PHP coding language.

While, "EOT" is quite commonly used in PHP, as the terminator for a here-document, this usage is not specific to PHP, nor is there any special reason to use EOT instead of any arbitrary string.

EOT in Morse code[edit]

This is a suggestion to increment the article: in Morse code, a kind of EOT signal is also used to end transmissions. However, I don't know if this is pertinent to this article. Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.13.218.119 (talk) 11:58, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Dubious[edit]

From a comment in the source code for the main article: "as the first ^D would be the eof. Perhaps only on systems where ^D is not EOF, but those are irrelevant to this discussion" (by Spitzak) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.21.7.38 (talk) 22:00, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

Apple II[edit]

The Apple II, at least those with Applesoft BASIC and Disk II, used the Ctrl+D sequence in programs in a rather odd way, as in

10 REM DEMO OF CTRL+D
20 PRINT CHR$(4) : BRUN "TESTPROG"
30 END

This character signalled that the next command should be sent to the Apple DOS software, instead of being handled by the BASIC interpreter. --Redrose64 🌹 (talk) 13:22, 31 October 2018 (UTC)
