Strange code in my terminal


I use solaris 10 with a csh. when making a mistaken in entering some
command and delting the character, I found that the strange code occurs
as soon as I enter the Backspace key. Now I jsut can use tcsh command to
solve the problem. i wonder some other useful methods to solve the problem and if the stty configuration is related to the trouble.

Can you write a step by step method that allow to reproduce what you describe ?

Also, you shouldn't use (t)csh, use ksh instead or bash.

More info

<1> login to my sun sparc workstation
<2> # soucre ( here, I enter a wrong command so I want to delete the command of soucre )
#soucre ^H(when entering BackSpace, the ^H is displayed) ^[[3~(when entering Del Key, the ^[[3~is displayed )
# tcsh ( Now I just can change to tcsh for solving the trouble)
<3> I wonder some terminal configuration method for solving this trouble instead of tcsh command. As you have told me that
tcsh should not be used here.

I guess you use the gnome terminal emulator, which by default has a weird configuration.
Open the "edit" menu, then "current profile", then select the "compatibility" tab.

Set the backspace key sending backspace and delete sending "ascii del" and see if it improves.

What is gnome terminal emulator

I open a terminal by using right-click mouse and select open terminal. I am not sure if it is the gnome terminal emulator.
And I enter solaris 10 JDS desktop environment. Also, I did the configuration work as you have said to me. However, I open
edit menu and can not open "current profile" becasue of the absence of "curent profile"

What other choices have you in your "edit menu" ?
