VIM vs. PuTTY keypad

The problem was annoying me for very long time: under PuTTY, applications (e.g. less, vim) using tek window (alternative terminal screen) had totally screwed keypad. Solution was found here.
Apparently, PuTTY tries to do something smart. And fails.
Workaround:

  1. Change function key/keypad mapping from standard "ESC[n~" to "Linux".
  2. Disable application keypad mode
Apparently only second is required, but first is also recommended.
The options, as usual to all options of Windows applications, change their location in settings dialog periodically so I cannot give their precise locations. Go through PuTTY setting and you will find them.

Thanks, I was finally able to use keypad numbers with VIM and PuTTY. This has been puzzeling me for years (I'm very patient).

And.. thank you !
