How to stop sh run on cisco pix/asa

I have tried ctrl-c, ctrl-z and esc but none of these keys work when trying to stop when performing show run or any show command. it's a small thing, but really annoying as i have to go space space space all the way.
please mentioned for both pix and asa if they are different

If terminal pager is set , you can use "q" to break / return back to device prompt. This is same in ASA and PIX
You can use grep too if you only want to see a certain part of the config, i.e. sh run | grep access-list outbound_traffic_web  will show you that specific ACL, obviously change whatever is after grep to the part of the config you want to look at.
