I've recently started using vim. From previous editors I'm used to delete whole word by pressing ctrl-backspace. After looking at the documentation I found that this was done by pressing ctrl-w in vim. The problem is that after getting used to pressing ctrl-w, I've started closing tabs and chats every time I misspell a word (while writing this question I closed this tab 5 times :P ). So I checked how to map keys in vim and tried this:
:imap <C-BS> <C-w>
Unfortunately it didn't work. After a bit of research I found that the terminal does not distinguish between ctrl-backspace and backspace. I saw some hacks and patches to fix this issue, but I couldn't get them to work on terminator (which is the emulator I want to use).
Is there any way to map ctrl-backspace in vim when using terminator?
