Description Bryce Nesbitt 1999-09-29 22:44:32 UTC
It seems like such a little thing, but each one of these
represents a barrier to entry into using Linux.  The pico
editor, as shipped with RH6.0, does not have a functional
delete key.  "pico -d" fixes it -- backsapce and delete then
work as most users, especially those from the win world,
would expect.
