I'm confused, then. The key marked <- on my keyboard has, in the past,
been used to delete the previous character, both at the Exec and when
in EMACS. The <control>B in EMACS always backspaced a character, and
since I never used <control>H, I don't know what it really did.
Now, I find that the same result is gotten by using either the
<- key, <control>B and <control>H. They all backspace one character.
What I'm trying to say is that this is a change from how my keyboard acted
last week and I'm having a difficult time adjusting to it.
Sorry if this sounds a bit mixed up. It's very late and I am frustrated
dealing with keyboard keys that don't do what they did last time i used
