This bug is Terminal should support xterm's 256-color mode. It was filed on 2006-03-17 at 20:44.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Launch Terminal.
- Run 256colors2.pl from the above website.
Lots of pretty colors.
Lots of backslashes and 16 pretty colors.
Some applications, including vim, look for TERM to be set to xterm-256color. Therefore, Terminal's default should be changed to this if 256-color support is added.
