 NAME
      tic - terminfo compiler

 SYNOPSIS
      tic [-v [n]] [-c] file ...

 DESCRIPTION
      tic translates terminfo files from source format into the compiled
      format.  Results are placed in the directory /usr/share/lib/terminfo.

      -vn	Specifies that (verbose) output be written to standard error
		trace information showing tic's progress. The optional
		integer n is a number from 1 to 10, inclusive, indicating
		the desired level of detail of information.  If n is
		omitted, the default level is 1. If n is specified and
		greater than 1, the level of detail is increased.

      -c	Specifies to check only file for errors. Errors in use=links
		are not detected.

      tic compiles all terminfo descriptions in the given files.  When a
      use= field is discovered, tic searches first the current file, then
      the master file which is ./terminfo.src.

      If the environment variable TERMINFO is set, the results are placed in
      the location specified by TERMINFO instead of in
      /usr/share/lib/terminfo.

      Limitations: total compiled entries cannot exceed 4096 bytes.  The
      name field cannot exceed 128 bytes.

 FILES
      /usr/share/lib/terminfo/?/*	      compiled terminal capability
					      data base

 SEE ALSO
      untic(1M), curses(3X), terminfo(4), captoinfo(1M).

 BUGS
      Instead of searching ./terminfo.src, tic should check for an existing
      compiled entry.
