How to input EOF from Windows connected to Unix maxhine via SSH

Hi, I'm connected remotely to a unix machine and my machine is running windows and I'm trying to write a C program that's taking input from stdin. How do I enter the 'EOF' character from my keyboard? (in UNIX it would be ctrl-D). I read somewhere that its ctrl-Z, but when I do that the window displays "Suspended" and the program just stops.

Thank you for your help!

If you are in a Unix shell within a telnet/SSH session such as putty, just use Ctrl-D. Ctrl-Z is only used with the DOS command prompt on Windows (the Windows command shell).
