If it is your telnet client, then try this:
load telnet, contact the moo, log in, and then do this:
press control-] this should get you into telnet's command mode.
type ' set erase ^H' (carat H) and press return, this should set your
backspace to the backspace key (which is on most computers control-H or
character code 8) and it will also put you right back into the MOO.
press control-E and press return, this should turn echo ON. (If it
doesn't then press control-] to get back into command mode again
and type 'display' and look at the character that is assigned to
erase, and re-perform this procedure using that character.)
With luck, this will work for you. :)

Subject: Once again, backspace & echo.
I mailed regarding the fact that the MOO doesn't work with backspace nor
does it echo characters.
I was told that it was my telnet client - which seemed to make sense.
However, I've tried 3 clients, and they all behave the same. I've tried
different types of emulation, too...
Furthermore, another MOO of the same flavour ( moo.du.org ) does behave well
with backspace from the same clients (although it doesn't echo).
Could someone please tell me what control character is translated as a
backspace within the MOO?
