Is there a unicode EOF mark like DOS ascii ctl-z or unix crl-d ?

If you're using Windows, you'll have to go with whatever nonstandard
options they give you.  I don't think contemporary Windows editors
respond to a keystroke to mean end of file.  If you're using command
line stuff in DOS, it's C-z (ASCII SUB, which means something entirely
different from end of file).
