Do you have a configurable terminal?  If so, it is best to configure
that to send DEL (that's ascii character 127) when you hit the
backspace key, and to send ESC [ 3 ~ (four characters) when you hit
the delete key.  That will be recognized by Emacs automatically, I

(You also might have to "stty erase ^?" from the shell where ^? is
obtained by typing C-v and then the backspace key.  I hope.)

Emacs calls it DEL, the shell calls it erase, everybody else calls it
backspace...  Talk about confusion.
