TERM(7)                Miscellaneous Information Manual                TERM(7)

       term - conventional names for terminals

       Certain  commands use these terminal names. They are maintained as part
       of the shell environment (see sh(1),environ(7)).

       The list goes on and on.  Consult /etc/termcap (see termcap(5)) for  an
       up-to-date and locally correct list.

       Commands  whose behavior may depend on the terminal either consult TERM
       in the environment, or accept arguments of the form -Tterm, where  term
       is one of the names given above.

       ul(1), tset(1), termcap(5), termcap(3X), ttytype(5)

       The programs that ought to adhere to this nomenclature do so only  fit-
