My Backspace key doesn't work. Would this be another mapping issue?

When you say doesn't work, do you mean that the cursor moves backward one space without deleting the character? If that is what it does, then it is working as designed. A real 5250 terminal works the same way.


You may be asking for a destructive backspace. There is a way to get this. Look in the archives - it has come up before.

If "doesn't work" means something else (like funny characters being printed on the screen) let me know.
