Re: [vox-tech] Linux and exceed



You know...I never was sure what the difference was. I always just hit the 
key I wanted to use as erase (ie the backspace key). I let the console 
generate the control code (which was ^H sometimes and ^? others).

I found that the Delete key (both on the numberpad and above the arrow 
keys) generates the same control character as shift-backspace (^?). 
Depending on the system I attach to, the backspace key seems to toggle 
between these two...

Can you explain how to generate the control characters on the screen that 
match what the key actually sends?
