The Apple Macbook keyboards do not have a 'forward delete' key. "Delete" is backspace and at the top right where one would expect it ;)
I've searched through the key maps but I can't find a 'delete char under cursor' key anywhere -- This is mapped to the delete key with arrow
which (on a full keyboard) is located with the 'home", "end" & cursor keys.
So how do I map a key to delete char forward to ^D ? (*) Clearly I'm completely missing something obvious!
