  • By on April 13, 2009 | No Comments

    In default, you can’t perform back space in Unix where you will get ^? character when you tap on backspace button.

    To fix this, just follow the instruction below: –
    1) Login to your Unix box
    2) Execute cd $HOME
    3) Execute vi .profile
    4) Add in the 2 lines below in the end of your .profile files

    stty erase ^?
    set -o emacs

    Relogin to your Unix box again and you shouldn’t have any problem or error on backspace again.
