putty + control-h


I was just wondering how I can use the tutorial in emacs and do other things in emacs that require the use of the command control-h if that command is bound to making backspaces. Is this something I can change in emacs, putty, or the linux computer that I am connecting to? Should I use 'alias' to change the binding for the backspace key on my linux machine?

Here's a workaround:

1) M-x describe-bindings (equivalent to C-h b).
2) look up the name of the C-h-prefixed command you want to run
3) M-x <that name>
