nothing to boast about, but a sign of "read the manual thoroughly thus might also put some considerable weight on proper work". I am slowly working my way under the hood of Linux and am currently very far away from doing paid work in this field [which is a goal but not my main motivation!]. Although 15 minutes of fame are nice too :)
Aww… sniff… this is one of my robots assembled from LEGO parts - s/he's part of a group of three quite awkward, hilarious [at least in my opinion] robots that will one day star in stop-motion short films. Something I will restart in the near future.
@terdon Re: stty and word erase - I'm not sure how one would specify ctrl-backspace. I'm using putty and it doesn't differentiate between backspace and ctrl-backspace. I could give examples on changing to other control combinations. Would that work?
@terdon I've added examples that don't include ctrl-backspace. Traditionally backspace sends either ctrl-h or ctrl-?. Don't know how it would send ctrl-ctrl-?.
Since you're new to SE, downvoting someone who answered the question you posted and not the question you had in your head is not very nice. Instead of downvoting someone who tried to help you, clarify your question and leave a comment explaining what you actually want. — terdon8 mins ago
Oh yeah, I left that one after that, then deleted my A, didn't want to waste my time. We answered his Q and he hadn't fully asked it then did that. Not worth the aggrevation.
@terdon - once I saw the username I stopped too. He's done that before, not worth the time. He asks the Q with "more info available if requested" and gives no details, and then DV's answers that are trying to help.
