this is a question I always wanted to ask but been afraid to.
For some reason, on my soalris 2.5 sparc-station, the backspace key
for some reason suddenly stops doing what it is supposed to do, it
erase the letter just typed, instead , hitting Backspace produced ^H,
when this happens, I either use the Del key instead, or have to type
$ stty erase ^H
This is a bit annoying, I know it is not a big deal, I asked around
about this, but no one seems to know why/how to solve this.
ANy idea on this? I'd really like the Backspace key not to lose it
binding, so I dont have to keep doing this stty erase ^H thing tens
of times every day.
