Not sure if remapping is the proper term here... A colleague is using
Mac OSX with X Window software called eXodus to access Solaris, DEC and
Linux machines in the lab. He uses tcsh on all the machines and has the
following code in his .cshrc files:
if ($?prompt) then
stty erase "^h"
stty erase "^?"
On everything but the Red Hat 7.3 machine this makes the big delete key
(PC Backspace key) work as expected. On the Linux machine he gets ~
when the large delete key is struck. I tried connecting to my machine
where I use bash and the large delete key does nothing. Suggestions?
