That will fail when using a different terminal emulation.

If you want to send a signal, you should use the protocol features
to _send signals_ instead of sending random binary bytes in a
channel, hoping that the software on the other side can guess what
you mean. There is a big difference, so you may end up having to do
it the right way later anyway.
