This one’s bugged the hell out of me for ages, but until I started using GNU Screen I never got round to fixing it. Desp has the skinny on fixing the backspace and forward-delete keys in OS X 10.4’s Terminal.app.
linked list, os x

I am having the exact same problems with os x and screen and the backspace key — if you have any other links to resources to deal with this I would greatly appreciate an update to the post. (OSX 10.5.6)

Hi John-Michael. This might fix it:
In Terminal.app go to Preferences? then the Advanced tab. Tick the ‘Delete sends Ctrl-H’ option. Try it again, it’ll hopefully work as desired!
If not, choosing a different option in the ‘Declare terminal as’ dropdown may help, depending on what system you’re shelling into.
