Printing a special character in the end of the program should help. Too bad, I don't remember what character it is :-) I always debug using simple uart plus FT232.

I have done this before, but I also forget the character used. Just make a for loop and printf the characters 0x00 -> 0x31. I know one of these will do it. (if you take your time, it shouldn't be hard to figure out which one)

I've added for loop with printf but it doesn't work.

Printing character 0x4 will send the ^D across and terminate nios2-terminal 

 

Something like this: 

 

printf("Bye\n %c", 0x4);

BadOmen, I've tried printing character 0x4 but it is not work for me. Maybe I should change JTAG UART settings in Qsys? Is any nios2-terminal terminated with 0x4 code?

That should have worked. Try running nios2-terminal from the command line instead. You should be able to download your code and open a terminal running something like the following command line: 

 

nios2-download -r -g <your .elf file name>; nios2-terminal

Thank you! It works fine in command line.  

But why it doesn't work using GUI? GUI uses console commands, I think...

The new tools use system console now so I suspect the ^D functionality was omitted. nios-terminal uses the old implementation instead of system console which I suspect is the cause of the functionally differences.
