** Variable `load-path' is no longer customizable because it contains
a version-dependent component.
** The new user-option `delete-key-deletes-forward' can be set to
let the Delete function key delete forward instead of backward.
** The new user-option `normal-erase-is-backspace' can be set to
determine the effect of the Delete and Backspace function keys.
On window systems, the default value of this option is chosen
according to the keyboard used. If the keyboard has both a Backspace
key and a Delete key, and both are mapped to their usual meanings, the
option's default value is set to t, so that Backspace can be used to
delete backward, and Delete can be used to delete forward.

keyboards which either have only one key (usually labeled DEL), or two
keys DEL and BS which produce the same effect, the option's value is
set to nil, and these keys delete backward.
If not running under a window system, setting this option accomplishes
a similar effect by mapping C-h, which is usually generated by the
Backspace key, to DEL, and by mapping DEL to C-d via
`keyboard-translate'. The former functionality of C-h is available on
the F1 key. You should probably not use this setting if you don't
have both Backspace, Delete and F1 keys.

terminal if you don't have both Backspace, Delete and F1 keys.
Programmatically, you can call function
delete-key-deletes-forward-mode to toggle the behavior of the Delete
key.
