Backspace does not work in Cygwin


I just installed Cygwin and the BACKSPACE functionality is not there, i.e. when I hit the Backspace key, I get a space.

I've been trying to research this issue on Google, but did not find anything conclusive.

In my case backspace was not at all working after creating blank ~/.vimrc. Following change made it work


set bs=2

in .vimrc
