Curses bug report for Python 2.7 and Python 3.2
My Python code outputs text properly with xterm and xterm-16color. It does not work properly with xterm-88color and xterm-256color (after defining RGB color pallet) when run on Python-2.7 and Python-3.2 on Cygwin with Windows 7 Pro, Ubuntu Linux 12.04, Mac OS X 10.9.3 and PS-BSD 10.
For text output to xterm-88color and xterm-256color Python generates unique colors that are plagued by the wrong color and underline artifacts.
xterm-16color xterm-16color xterm-88color xterm-256color
========== ========== ========== ===========
Region 1 cyan on black cyan on black cyan on olive with underlines cyan on purple with underlines
Region 2 white on black white on black navy on black white on orange
Region 3 yellow on black yellow on black magenta on black with underlines navy on black with underlines
Some of my test platform terminals (such as iTerm2 on my iMac desktop system running Mac OSX Mavericks 10.9.3) default to xterm-256color and presumably already have Python 2.7.5 built for 256 color. I downloaded and built Python 3.2.2.
My Python test code works properly with xterm and xterm-16color. Both display the wrong colors, some with underlines when run with xterm-88color and xterm-256color.
Any solutions or suggestions?
