bug#11071: manual fails to point out that C-S-backspace only works with

From: Eric Hanchrow
Subject: bug#11071: manual fails to point out that C-S-backspace only works with GUIs
Date: Thu, 22 Mar 2012 14:45:18 -0700

This bug report will be sent to the Bug-GNU-Emacs mailing list
and the GNU bug tracker at debbugs.gnu.org.  Please check that
the From: line contains a valid email address.  After a delay of up
to one day, you should receive an acknowledgement at that address.

Please write in English if possible, as the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators for other languages.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug, and
the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give a recipe
starting from `emacs -Q':

I did  C-h r g Killing whole lines RET to read the Emacs manual.

It says

         Kill an entire line at once (`kill-whole-line')

However, I don't think it's possible to type `C-S-backspace' when using
emacs in console mode.  If I'm right about that, it'd be good if the
manual pointed that out -- it'd be even better if Emacs bound
kill-whole-line to something that _could_ be typed in console mode.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
