Archived - AIX: Backspace Does Not Work in Command Shell Utility

The command shell utility supplied with the AIX on the Apple Network Server does not let the user use the back space key.
This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.
The easiest solution is after the user has a command shell login, type:

set -o emacs

This will correct backspace key mapping.
