Backspace wrap

This option allows you to choose what you want to do when you press backspace. Some terminals believe that the backspace key should send the same thing to the server as Control-H (ASCII code 8). Other terminals believe that the backspace key should send ASCII code 127 (usually known as Control-?) so that it can be distinguished from Control-H. Select between:

On

Off

Dos

Force Non-destructive backspace

Allow to perform a normal backspace without deleting a character.

Ignore Substitute character

Ignore the substitute character that can be use in Putty.

Implicit Carriage return in Linefeed

Most servers send two control characters, CR and LF, to start a new line on the screen. The CR character makes the cursor return to the left-hand side of the screen. The LF character makes the cursor move one line down (and might make the screen scroll).

 

Some servers only send LF, and expect the terminal to move the cursor over to the left automatically. If you come across a server that does this, you will see a stepped effect on the screen. If this happens to you, try enabling the option and things might go back to normal.
