== Description==

ERASE specifies the symbol for character deletion used in editing.

A character, decimal, or hexadecimal EBCDIC character code should be used to indicate the value of the parameter. For certain terminals, it is convenient to set ERASE to 109, which is the decimal representation of the code transmitted by the backspace key.

The use of ERASE is controlled by the EDIT parameter.
