No, its actually the job of your distributor to configure programs
such that they work together nicely.  On Debian, I've never had
any backspace issues with Emacs.

Yeah, that is obvious, since you rant the third time in some weeks about
this issue :-).

I've demonstrated how to run sc code from the command-line.  If you prefer
Vim and stuff, I really dont understand what is now preventing you
from using SC without Emacs.  Its going to be awkward, but hey, thats
what you get for skipping Emacs! :-)  Vi users have to feel the
pain, self-inflicted and all...

Simply edit your .sc file, and if you think it should work, do:

# sclang scfile.sc -

Now you can use stdin to test some additional commands (real-time programming).
If an error occured, go back to your mighty vim and edit the .sc file.

Since I dont use vi very much, I dont really know if
it can run and communicate with external processes.  For a more Vim friendly
interface to SC you'll have to find a Vim expert (if they exist).
