256color ZSH Plugin

This ZSH plugin enhances the terminal environment with 256 colors. It looks at the chosen TERM environment variable and sees if there is respective (n-)curses' termcap/terminfo descriptors for 256 colors available. The result is a multicolor terminal, if available.


If the environment variable $ZSH_256COLOR_DEBUG is set to any value when the plugin loads, some debugging information is printed to stderr. This is useful to find out which strategy was successful to set a 256 colors terminal.
