termcap diff for putty-256color none

Description Scott Robison 2013-01-18 03:20:00 UTC
I hope I got the class right, and this is not a bug so much as a request for enhancement.

The termcap database includes a definition for PuTTY that looks like this:

putty|vt220-color|vt220-co|vt220 emulator with ANSI colors:\
        :pa#64:Co#8:AF=\E[3%dm:AB=\E[4%dm:op=\E[39;49m\E[m:tc=vt220:

This is good and works nicely, but does not support the full 256 color palette that PuTTY supports.

Fix: 

I've added the following two lines to my termcap:

putty-256color:\
        :pa#32767:Co#256:tc=putty:

It seems to work acceptably. Ultimately of course, I don't care if my suggestion is the official definition, I'd just like one that works. :^)

Thanks!
How-To-Repeat: Not really a problem. Just a suggestion for a new termcap entry.
