You're not supposed to ask for solutions to be sent by email; when someone searches for this here, they'll only find it if someone posts it.

Ctrl-D isn't a signal, it causes stdin to report EOF. Like so:
#include <unistd.h>
#include <stdio.h>

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  char buf[512];

  fprintf(stderr,"Ctrl-D or EOF\n");
