how to write control-c to an open process?

I just found a different way to accomplish the same outcome.
Instead of writing some special form of control-c to the process, I can
get the ID of the process and issue a 'kill' shell command for that ID
using the 'kill' format option that sends the same signal as the one
sent by typing control-c. The outcome is identical to control-c but no
control chars are required.
So this works:
kill -s INT <PID>
Where <PID> is the numeric ID of the process I want to end.
