NAME
  terminfo - Describes terminals by capability

DESCRIPTION

  A terminfo file is a database	that describes the capabilities	and method of
  operation of various terminals.  The database	includes definitions of	ini-
  tialization sequences, padding requirements, cursor positioning, and other
  command sequences that control specific terminals.

  Before a terminfo source file	can be used, it	must be	compiled using the
  tic command.	The compiled terminfo entries are placed into subdirectories
  of the /usr/lib/terminfo directory.  This directory may be redefined with
  the TERMINFO environment variable.  See the EXAMPLES section for more
  information on using the TERMINFO environment	variable.

  Each terminfo	file entry consists of a number	of fields separated by com-
  mas.	Any white space	between	commas is ignored. The first field for each
  terminal supplies the	names the terminal is known by,	separated by vertical
  bars (|).  The first name given is the most common abbreviation for the
  terminal, the	last name given	is a long name fully identifying the termi-
  nal, and all others are synonyms for the terminal name.  All names except
  the last are in lowercase and	do not contain any white space.

  The fields following the terminal name supply	the capabilities of the	ter-
  minal.  Although capability names have no absolute length limit, an infor-
  mal limit of 5 characters is adopted to keep them short and to allow the
  tabs in the source file caps to be aligned.  Whenever	possible, names	are
  chosen to be the same	as or similar to the ANSI X3.64	standard of 1979.

  Terminal names (except the last) are chosen using the	following conven-
  tions. A root	name is	chosen to represent the	particular hardware class of
  the terminal.	This name does not contain hyphens, except to avoid synonyms
  that conflict	with other names. Possible modes for the hardware or user
  preferences are indicated by appending a - (hyphen) and one of the follow-
  ing suffixes:

  -am With automatic margins (usually default)

  -c  Color mode

  -w  Wide mode	(more than 80 columns)

  -nam
      Without automatic	margins

  -n  Number of	lines on the screen

  -na No arrow keys (leave them	in local)

  -np Number of	pages of memory

  -rv Reverse video

  Thus,	a vt100	terminal in 132-column mode would be vt100-w.

  Capabilities in the terminfo file are	of three types:

    +  Boolean capabilities indicate that the terminal has some	particular
       feature.	Boolean	capabilities are evaluated as true if the correspond-
       ing name	is in the terminal description.

    +  Numeric capabilities give the size of the terminal or the size of par-
       ticular delays.

    +  String capabilities give	a sequence that	can be used to perform par-
       ticular terminal	operations.

  To continue an entry onto multiple lines, place white	space at the begin-
  ning of each subsequent line.	 Include a comment on a	line beginning with
  the #	(number	sign) character.  To comment out an individual capability,
  precede it with a . (dot).

  List of Capabilities

  The following	table shows the	C variable (which the programmer uses to
  access the terminfo capabilities), the capability name (the short name used
  in the text of the database),	the 2-letter internal code used	in the com-
  piled	database (always corresponding to a termcap capability name), and a
  short	description of each capability.

EXAMPLES

  The following	is an uncompiled terminfo entry	for the	xterm terminal type:

       xterm|vs100|xterm terminal emulator,
	       ind=^J, cols#80,	lines#25,
	       clear=E[HE[2J, cub1=^H, am, cup=E[%i%p1%d;%p2%dH,
	       cuf1=E[C, cuu1=E[A, el=E[K, ed=E[J,
	       cud=E[%p1%dB, cuu=E[%p1%dA, cub=E[%p1%dD,
	       cuf=E[%p1%dC, km,
	       smso=E[7m, rmso=E[m, smul@, rmul@,
	       bold=E[1m, rev=E[7m, blink=@, sgr0=E[m,
	       rs1=E>E[1;3;4;5;6lE[?7hE[mE[rE[2JE[H, rs2=@
	       kf1=EOP,	kf2=EOQ, kf3=EOR, kf4=EOS, ht=^I, ri=EM,
	       vt@, xon@, csr=E[%i%p1%d;%p2%dr,
	       il=E[%p1%dL, dl=E[%p1%dM, il1=E[L, dl1=E[M,
	       ich=E[%p1%d@, dch=E[%p1%dP, ich1=E[@, dch1=E[P,
	       use=vt100-am,

  The first line of the	xterm entry contains two names for the terminal	type
  (xterm and vs100), and a third name that fully describes the terminal.
  When the terminfo entry is compiled with the tic command, entries are	made
  in /usr/lib/terminfo/x/xterm and /usr/lib/terminfo/v/vs100, unless the TER-
  MINFO	environment variable was used to redefine the default path.  The TER-
  MINFO	environment variable is	useful when testing a new entry, or when you
  do not have write permission for the /usr/lib/terminfo directory tree.  For
  example, if the TERMINFO environment variable	is set to /usr/raj/test, the
  tic command places the compiled terminfo entries into	/usr/raj/test/x/xterm
  and /usr/raj/test/v/vs100.  The TERMINFO environment variable	is also
  referenced by	programs that use terminfo (such as vi), so the	new entry can
  be tested right away.

  The second line of the xterm entry says that pressing	a Ctrl-j causes	the
  screen to scroll up, and that	the screen dimensions are 80 columns by	24
  lines.

  The third line of the	entry sets the string that clears the screen (ESCAPE
  followed by "[H", another ESCAPE, and	then the string	"[2J"),	defines
  <&lt;Ctrl-h>&gt; as the backspace key, and declares that the terminal	has automatic
  margins.  The	string for relative cursor movement is also specified, using
  terminfo parameter syntax.

  The rest of the capabilities are declared likewise.  The last	line of	the
  entry	reads "use=vt100-am"", meaning that the	vt100-am terminal entry
  should be read first as the basis for	the xterm terminal entry, with the
  capabilities explicitly defined overriding their default vt100-am values.
  Note that the	smul, rmul, vt,	and xon	capabilities are removed by following
  them with an @ (at sign).
