- Subject: stty erase
I have just installed Cygwin on Windows XP.
Immediately I noticed the wrong behavior of the backspace key.
As it proved, it was caused by the fact that terminfo for cygwin defined
whereas /etc/profile had the line
stty erase '^?'
I think it would be better to put this line in /etc/profile instead:
stty erase `tput kbs`
Then the erase character will always match the backspace key ("kbs") in
current terminal description.
