Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 133585
Backspace in vim and man
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:49 EST
Description of problem: All of sudden after upgrading to FC3T2, I get
"^?" lotsa places, but vi(m) and man are the most bothersome. I fixed
vi(m) with "set t_kb=^?" in ~/.vimrc, but haven't yet figured out how
to fix man.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always appears, will not go away unless, for
example, ~/.vimrc fix above applied.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a document, "vi my.txt".
2. Go to insert mode, type some text.
3. Try to backspace to erase text.
Hitting backspace, which previously erased, gives "^?", no erase.
Text erase in insert mode.
Additional info: In a man page, trying to search for a string, same
behavior of backspace which previously erased text in /string_to_search.
I think this got fixed for the final version.
