I'm a bit stuck with a minor inconvenience in emacs.
Starting emacs in a win32-mode rxvt terminal (or at a cmd prompt) like this
or, bypassing my .emacs,
emacs -q -nw
I get a nice color- and face-aware emacs. But C-h and Backspace are weird.
Executing 'describe-key' and entering C-h and Backspace produces the
DEL runs the command backward-delete-char-untabify
C-d runs the command delete-char
I'd expected that C-h was a prefix, and that Backspace was received as DEL.
I've found no convenient way to enter C-h.
Am I the only one with this experience?
