I have a Wyse 60 terminal connected to my server running SCO Unix and am
having trouble getting the backspace key to always work in both Lotus
1-2-3 and WordPerfect 5.1
The problem is as follows:
The Lotus 1-2-3 manuals tell me to map the backspace key to "^B" using
the select option of the terminal. Backspace works fine in both the
operating system and Lotus 1-2-3 as long as I "stty erase "^B" " in order
pick up the new map.
However, after I run wordperfect map I just made (in the select option of
the wyse 60) it reset to the original "^H"
Lotus tells me that it must have "^B"
What I want to do is place a command in my Lotus startup script that will
translate any "^H"'s into "^B"'s (the "^H" ins generated by the backspace
This will avoid the problem of WP resetting the setup on the terminal.
Thanks in advance.
