I don't know why your setup would be acting funny, but the details
about binding keys can be found in the zshzle man page.
I'm using cygwin at the moment (I know, I know) and had been meaning
to fix a few of its keys for a long time. You motivated me to finally
do it! I fired up vi on my .zshrc and added this line:
bindkey "^[[3~" delete-char
That worked for me. After the first quote, I did control-v [delete
key]. If you cut and pasted that line from somewhere, you may not
have gotten the correct characters, so I'd suggest doing it like I
did. For the home and end keys, I did something similar:
bindkey "^[[H" beginning-of-line
bindkey "^[[F" end-of-line
For me, for some strange reason, I was getting "^[OF" in vi. So be
careful of that....
Anyway, hope that helps; there may be better ways to accomplish this.
