I cannot manage to globally bind my Delete key to something other than the default. How does one do this?
Answer: The problem is that many modes explicitly bind Delete. To get around this, try the following:
(defun foo () (interactive) (message "You hit DELETE")) (define-key key-translation-map 'delete 'redirected-delete) (global-set-key 'redirected-delete 'foo)
