Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 65090
xemacs backspace should do the right thing in a tty
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:38 EDT
Description of Problem:
Pushing backspace in an XEmacs session in a tty puts one into
the help keymap
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. xemacs -q
2. Press Backspace
C-h (Type ? for further options)
The char behind point should have been deleted.
Either tty-erase-char should be initialised to ?\^H in a tty,
(setq tty-erase-char ?\^H))
unless backspace is made to generate ?\^? (\177) in a tty.
Can't reproduce it... could you provide more details on your setup?
