Backspace key problem
When I SSH to my other linux box (through an xterm), and then, enter into an interactive mode (say, with rm -i) my backspace key fails to function properly. That is, a ^H is produced instead.
I tried this (the above sequence) in a v-terminal, (ctrl+alt+f1), and the backspace key functioned without problem. So it's only when I use the xterm program do I receive this problem.
But, I discovered a fix, though, it's only temporary. Apparently if I do: stty erase \^H once I've logged into SSH, the backspace key works as it should for interactive mode.
I don't want to have to type this command though every time. I don't think it's necessary to have to use this command as it (interactive mode backspace) works without it in a vterm. Not to mention in MDK 9.1, it works in the xterm.
Any help is appreciated.
