NAME

  captoinfo - Converts a termcap description into a terminfo description.

SYNOPSIS

  captoinfo [-v	...] [-V] [-1] [-w options] file...

OPTIONS

  -1  Prints a field per line.	Otherwise, multiple fields are printed on a
      line up to a maximum width of 60 characters.

  -v  Outputs tracing information to standard error during program execution.
      Specifying more than one -v option causes	more detailed information to
      be printed.

  -V  Outputs to standard error, the version of	the executing program.

  -w  Outputs information according to the specified width (in characters).

DESCRIPTION

  The captoinfo	command	searches the specified file for	termcap	descriptions.
  For each description found, an equivalent terminfo description is written
  to standard output (along with any comments found).  A description that is
  expressed as relative	to another description (such as	termcap	tc = field)
  is reduced to	the minimum superset before being output.

  If a file is not specified, the environment variable TERMCAP is used for
  the filename or entry.  If TERMCAP is	a full pathname	to a file, only	the
  name of the terminal specified by the	environment variable TERM is
  extracted.  If the environment variable TERMCAP is not set, then the file
  /usr/share/lib/termcap is read.

FILES

  /usr/share/lib/terminfo/?/*
      Compiled terminal	description database.
