    I noticed this problem further down the page after I posted this....I see it is not just myself that is having a problem....does HP11.11 not play nice with perl or something? and I cant do your fix just yet, because I am also having a problem with the @ symbol...seems I cant type it on this friggen system....it kind of acts like a Ctrl-W key or something...it is really messed up *sigh*
      Your @ woes are UN*X-related, not Perlish.
      You know it's a UNIX system when backspace does something else.
      In your case, stty sane (typed at the shell!) should fix things). If not, stty werase ^w should help.

      Bonus old fart points for remembering which key deletes just one character!

        You know it's a UNIX system when backspace does something else.

        I used to work with a sysadmin who taught people to not leave their environment config files world-writable by inserting the following line:

        stty erase ' '
        A dirty trick, but effective. If it ever happens to you, remember that '\' is the shell escape character. :)

        You don't mean ^H, do you? That can't be it, or I'd be earning 'Bonus old fart points'.

        Update: I have been informed that as I suspected, my initial thought was too simple.

        BTW, while on this topic... Using Term::ANSI can be much more convenient than using print and \c all the time.
