Description Nikolaus Klepp 2019-11-20 18:51:34 UTC
In the FAQs chapter 4.4.4 "How do I use my delete key in sh and csh?": What should be acomplished: "delete" removes character right of cursor. "backspace" removes character left of cursor. But the documentatation advises to remap both "delete" and "backspace" to remove the character left of the cursor. So these two lines shpould be deleted from the FAQ: bind ^? ed-delete-next-char # for console bindkey ^? delete-char # for console

Ooops, typo: It should be: [..] "delete" and "backspace" to remove the character right of the cursor. -- which results in a surprise as "backspace" appears not to work any more why typing.
