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:\
This is good and works nicely, but does not support the full 256 color palette that PuTTY supports.
I've added the following two lines to my termcap:
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. :^)
How-To-Repeat: Not really a problem. Just a suggestion for a new termcap entry.
I'll take it.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.
This is a very small addition to the system termcap that already has an entry for "putty". Is there some reason why this can't be done?
Yes, it still relevant. Every system upgrade I have to reapply this change to the termcap.
