Add full ANSI color support to Terminal.app
Authored by: Eljay on Mar 24, '07 04:18:35AM

This worked for me, using NCurses (5.4) or Vim (7.0p51) or Angband or other terminfo savvy applications (OS X 10.4.9, Terminal.app v1.5 (133)), in my ~/.bashrc:

export TERM=xterm-16color

It worked far better than TERM=Apple_Terminal or TERM=xterm-color.

Take a look at the infocmp -1afE dump of xterm-16color versus Apple_Terminal or xterm-color and you'll see why. Looks like Apple_Terminal terminfo has not been kept up to date with Terminal.app. Tsk tsk.
