There is a bug with ne Rubout key on OS X and some other systems.
Rubout (Backspace key) erases chars like Delete key; ^H works well.


Fix it temporary that way: in the file
~/.ne/.keys
 add this line:

 KEY 7F Backspace

See the "Hints and Tips" section of the manual, one of which is
Mac users should turn on “Delete sends CTRL-H” in the Terminal settings.
If you are a Mac user, you need to check the “Delete sends CTRL-H” option in the
‘ Advanced ’ tab of the Terminal application settings.

Ok. I understood. I checked "Delete sends ^H" in iTerm2 > iTerm2 > Preferences > Keys.
ne now is working okay. Backspace and Delete works as expected:Backspace sends 
^H
not
^?
Delete sends HEX

Rubout still works bad, but bug fixed by:Backspace is Backspace, not Rubout.
Thanks you very much!
