Subject: problems with demacs

Several days ago, I posted a message asking whether this was the appropriate
group to ask questions about demacs.  I'll take the lack of response as a
tacit "yes."

My problem is that I can't seem to get the backspace/delete key to work as
a delete key.  I have tried uncommenting the (load-library "term/bobcat")
line in _emacs as suggested in the FAQ, but it makes no difference.  I've
also tried explicitly setting the backspace-delete variable to C-h there,
but again, it has no effect.  In fact, I tried an experiment where I moved
_emacs out my home directory, deleted the copy in home, and started demacs
again, and it it didn't make any difference that _emacs was missing
altogether.  I have the HOME, TERMCAP, TERM, etc. variables set to their
proper values in a BAT file that I call from autoexec.bat.  Does anyone have 
any suggestions for what it is that I'm doing wrong?  I wondered if I needed 
a full-blown elisp interpreter in addition to whatever lisp stuff is
contained in the demacs package.  If that is the problem, can someone direct
me to an ftp site where I can get one?  There is an xlisp at,
and I wondered if that would work.  

Any help or insight that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
