Correction, I meant "ctrl-break", earlier someone asked about ctrl-alt-del

There is no such mechanism in the qemu documentation, but there is this way:

1. Use the appropriate hot-key to switch to the qemu monitor screen
2. Type this command at the "(qemu)" prompt
(qemu) sendkey ctrl-alt-delete

This can of cause be automated by having software on the guest connect to the
qemu monitor and send the command when you press your magic key.

Another available method is to use the VNC console and a VNC client with a
ctrl-alt-del function.

I've been digging into the lack of a proper break key on laptops (my MacBook for example) and I was wondering if it would be possible to remap one of the existing keys on the laptop to the CTRL-BREAK key, which sends the scancode E0 46? I'd be fine with having CTRL-ALT-] map to it or pretty much anything not typically typed in DOS. But doing assembly programming in DOS without a break key is frustrating to no end. Pointers to qemu keymapping documentation would be helpful or any sort of 'here's a keymapping example' tip.
