Standard behaviour for DEL and BACKSPACE with Tex prompt

If TeX is interrupted or has executed a \show command, and asks for input at the command prompt, I would like the DEL and BACKSPACE keys to exhibit standard behaviour. [Presently, the control codes are seen as characters, so it is impossible to correct a typo when entering a command or a control sequence.]

The issue is related only with Centaur. And has no any effect to TeXWord.

I do not understand what the comment is saying. Should I request this feature elsewhere or is Centaur considered unimportant?

Just clarification.

Many users work only with TeXWord and will not know about what you talk.

Returning to this subject: for those (like me) who do use the TeX prompt, it would be very helpful if this works the way it did with "traditional" TeX implementations. I usually get the prompt after making a typo in material I added to the source file, and if I then make only a single typo I lose the possibility to temporarily fix the problem. This wastes time especially with big jobs.
