I just compiled and set up firebird-1.5.1 (SuperServer)
on my Linux-PC and tried some examples from the
Firebird 1.5 Quick Start Guide. Since I want to learn
some SQL basics, I'm not using any GUI client, but
fiddled around with isql.
I noticed that my DELETE-Key doesn't work like it does
in other applications: Instead of deleting the character
at the cursor position, it prints the "~" sign - no matter
whether I use isql on a standard console or an XTerm. I
even tried to emulate different keyboard layouts (with
KDE's "Konsole"): XTerm (XFree 4.x), XTerm (XFree
3.x), vt100, vt420pc - but nothing happened.
I don't think that's a "bug", so I decided to open a
Feature Request instead. It would be nice if the
DEL-Key behaves as expected - just a cosmetical topic.
