Hello, I'm a new user to FreeBSD and Unix. I used Solaris 10 last week in lab, and found there is a difference between them.
When Solaris is installed, press backspace will give you ^H, you'll have to "stty erase ^H" to solve this problem. But with FreeBSD 6.1, when first installed, backspace is always bounded to erase last character, even I have "stty erase ^?" and "stty erase2 ^?", backspace still deletes last character input. Does any body know why is this happening? And strange thing is with default setting (before stty erase and erase2 to ^?), when I use Emacs, C-h will give me back space, instead of help. I know this is desirable for experts, but I'm really new so just want to follow the instruction first. The $TERM is cons25. Regards, D. Zhang PS: This does not happen in X environment though. I've Google'd but nothing really related came up. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
