Still poking around with my brand new mac and I quickly found out that I have no del key. What a bad joke! Hopefully there’s tons of plugins around that can fix that.
DoubleCommand allows to remap your keyboard. A good way to deal with this is to map SHIFT - backspace to the del key. That way, backspace is a backward delete and shift backspace a forward delete. Cool
And if it does not work in your terminal, just read this blog entry to make it work.
