At the place where I work we're developing under AIX with ksh and connecting to it via
telnet. Most people use ArcTel to connect, while I prefer PuTTY. The only problem I have with PuTTY is that the Del key isn't working - it prints
[3~ instead. The funny thing is that in ArcTel it is functioning correctly.
I tried looking at the ArcTel settings and there it only has one switch, called "Backspace and Delete": it can be either "normal" or "VNS-style". I have normal turned on (and Del works as expected). In PuTTY I tried playing around with the keyboard settings and couldn't find a combination that'd make Del do what I want it to do.
Is there a way to make this work in PuTTY? Maybe remapping the
[3~ character in my
.profile? I don't want to switch from Vi-mode in KSH though.
