Map the Backspace key in SGI Irix

Because "stty erase [backspace]" doesn't work in Irix like it does in HP/UX & Solaris:

stty intr \^C erase \^? kill \^U

FYI, you have to be in bash shell for this to work.








So the easiest thing to do was set the linux access terminal:
Edit --> Profile --> Edit --> Compatibility --> Backspace key generates "Control-H"
