guys, here's a bug with how the backspace key doesn't work across computers. i'm not sure if there were troubles going from FBSD to FBSD, but there is when i ssh from my ubuntu platform to my main desktop. i do this to edit files or for replying to mutt mail using vi.
going from ethos [ubuntu] to tao [fbsd] and using vi, the backspace key is translated to \177 and is echoed as "^?". it does not erase. i have to type % stty erase ^V [backspacekey] to fix this problem. otherwise, to erase a character, i have to type a control-H. it is exact the same problem going from fbsd to ubunto. has anybody seen this before? tia, gary -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org The 4.91a release of Jottings: http://jottings.thought.org/index.php _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
