This way I could avoid using Fn+BackSpace. That would be really convenient.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I suppose people who closed this didn't really read this post. If I follow the suggestion of the duplicate I only need to pull the source code of the program, find the new mapping codings, recompile the program and then it's good to use. Basically this question was not answer by the post above. Conclusion is nobody has an easy way to achieve this - (and maybe that this forum doesn't work as well as stackoverflow :( ) – rui Jul 21 '10 at 16:47

You can use ctrl+D to forward-delete on a Mac.

(P.S. Macs have a Delete key, not a Backspace key. ;) )

Actually, the ctrl+d shortcut is nice to know. Thanks. It would however still be convenient to use Caps Lock key for something useful. :) – rui Jul 16 '10 at 13:21
@rui, swap caps lock with ctrl. Mac and Linux have an option in Keyboard Preferences, but in Windows you have to hack the registry – Brian Jul 16 '10 at 13:28
Would be really handy to have the Linux like Delete key there instead. Plus Control + d doesn't seem to work in some applications... :( – rui Jul 16 '10 at 13:37
