How to resolve Backspace key issue in sqlplus.

Backspace key does not work in sqlplus.

It's not a issue form Oracle. This is a terminal type issue.

echo $TERM

stty -a and see if you have done anything special with the backspace key.

I hope it’s working now.

Alternate way you can use.

  1. Type stty erase in the terminal

  2. Press CTRL+v on your keyboard

  3. Press the Backspace Key on the keyboard (when I did this it put ^H on the line so my final line looked like stty erase ^H)

  4. Press enter

Now restart SQLPLUS you are able to use the backspace key to delete mistyped characters.
