FreeBSD putty delete key
Posted on 2006-03-31
I am using putty to connect to a FreeBSD system. I would like the delete key to operate by deleting the character under the cursor and leaving the cursor in the same posiion.
Instead, it causes a beep and inserts a hyphen ("-"). <-- not a smiley, showing the hyphen.
This happens no matter what keyboard emulation or setting I have in putty (except that SCO emulation makes it act like the backspace key).
I believe that putty it is trying to insert ESC- for the delete key . The backspace works normally.
Is there a stty setting that I can use to enable "proper" delete key functioning?
