captoinfo - Converts a termcap description into a terminfo
captoinfo [-v ...] [-V] [-1] [-w options] file...
Prints a field per line. Otherwise, multiple fields are
printed on a line up to a maximum width of 60 characters.
Outputs tracing information to standard error during program
execution. Specifying more than one -v option causes
more detailed information to be printed. Outputs to standard
error, the version of the executing program. Outputs
information according to the specified width (in characters).
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.
Compiled terminal description database.
