[S] Keyboard mapping in Splus for Unix

For some reason, the 'backspace' key doesn't work in Splus for UNIX:

> s^H^H^H

Each time I presss "backspace", "^H" show up instead. No problem with
other packages. (all others !)

The simplest solution is to tell SPLUS that "^H" is actually
"backward-delete-character". How do I do this ? I use X-window.

Another question: Have anyone of you tried SPLUS 5.0 for UNIX ? Doesn't it
really boost speed and have better memory management ?

Thanks in advance,
Vincent
