You just need to get it configured right. For some things I need to do something like CTRL-BACKSPACE instead of regular BACKSPACE or other variations in certain circumstances. But, I get what I need with the defaults (nothing special), so I haven't bothered to learn the keyboard config and vi config, etc stuff, but it is there and people make them do whatever they want. If you really want, you can make it remap however you want. But, you will probably have to do some research on keyboard remapping and vi, and command line config, etc. ////jerry > .... > > === > This way to get things to delete in vi seems odd to > me. > I have always used 'x' to delete from the right, and > "X" to delete from the left.
