NAME

captoinfo - convert a termcap description into a terminfo description

SYNOPSIS

captoinfo [ -1 ] [ -v ... ] [ -V ] [ -w width ] filename ...

DESCRIPTION

captoinfo looks in filename for termcap descriptions. For each one found, an equivalent terminfo description is writ- ten to standard output, along with any comments found. A description which is expressed as relative to another description (as specified in the termcap tc = field) is reduced to the minimum superset before being displayed. If no filename is given, then the environment variable TERMCAP is used for the filename or entry. If TERMCAP is a full pathname to a file, only the terminal whose name is specified in the environment variable TERM is extracted from that file. If the environment variable TERMCAP is not set, then the file /usr/share/lib/termcap is read.

OPTIONS

-1 Display the fields one to a line. Otherwise, the fields are printed several to a line, with a maximum width of 60 characters. -v Display tracing information on the standard error as the program runs. Specifying additional -v options displays more detailed information. -V Display the version of the program in use on the stan- dard error and then exit. -w width Change the output to width characters.

FILES

/usr/share/lib/terminfo/?/* compiled terminal description database /usr/share/lib/termcap
