captoinfo - convert a termcap description into a terminfo description
captoinfo [-v ...] [-V] [-1] [-w width] file ...
captoinfo looks in file for termcap descriptions. For each one 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 (as specified in the termcap tc = field) is reduced
to the minimum superset before being output.
If no file is given, 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.
-v Print out tracing information on standard error as the program
runs. Specifying additional -v options causes more detailed
information to be printed.
-V Print out the version of the program in use on standard error
-1 Print out fields one to a line. Otherwise, the fields are
printed several to a line to a maximum width of 60 characters.
-w width Change the output to width characters.
/usr/share/lib/terminfo/?/* Compiled terminal description database.
captoinfo should be used to convert termcap entries to terminfo entries
because the termcap database (from earlier versions of UNIX System V) may
not be supplied in future releases.
