However, since you _did_ get colors when you tried it, it clearly
supports more than just vanilla vt100 attributes.  So perhaps there are
other TERM types that might actually do what you want; you might try,
for instance, "xterm", or "linux", both of which are vaguely like a
vt100 but support color.

[Of course maybe the docs for you program actually say what the true
terminal type should be!]

has to be us.  -- Jerry Garcia
