backspace in wscons console sends ^H to processes
I have a problem with my backspace key in wscons console (vt220
emulated); backspace appears to send ^H, which is correctly interpreted
by the line editor, but not by child processes, e.g.
My assumption is this can be fixed by remapping the keycode the
backspace is sending with something like:
wsconsctl -w map+="keycode CODE = backspace"
But after trawling through apropos I haven't found a command to monitor
keycode input and so don't know what keycode backspace is actually
sending, if that makes sense...
Or am I completely on the wrong track? Any guidance at all would be
Thank you for your time,
