According to the tutorial I am reading, C-d works like Del works on most
windows editors, that is, it deletes the character to the right of the
cursor, and Del works like Backspace usually works:
delete-char. Deletes the character to the right of (under, if the
cursor is a block that covers a character) the cursor.
delete-backward-char. Deletes the character to the left of the cursor.
But both the Windows version of emacs that I am using, and the version
on a Debian box I am connecting to, treats C-d and Del the same way. How
do I do a normal Backspace, that deletes the character to the left of
the cursor? Backspace works on the windows version, but not on the
Debian version that I use via ssh. And according to the tutorial "Emacs
does not use C-h (aka Backspace) for deletion", so I will have to get
rid of the Backspace habit.
