allowing backspace and @ in login prompt on HPUX

The backspace, @ (at sign), and # (pound character) don't work at the login prompt on HPUX systems. In HP-UX the default kill and erase values are set to @ and # respectively, you can change them via /dev/ttyconf by creating a custom startup script. See the following ITRC threads and the section labeled "Control Character Default Assignments" on the man page for stty: http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-60127/stty.1.html

See termio(7) for the default values of control characters: http://docs.hp.com/en/B2355-60127/termio.7.html

like this: stty erase ^H kill ^U intr ^C susp ^Z < /dev/ttyconf
