NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ul	- underline

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     ul	[ -i ] [ -t terminal ] [ filename . . .	]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The ul command reads the named filenames (or the standard input if	none
     are given)	and translates occurrences of underscores to the sequence
     which indicates underlining for the terminal in use, as specified by the
     environment variable TERM.	 ul uses the appropriate
     /usr/share/lib/terminfo file to determine the character sequences for
     underlining.  If the terminal is incapable	of underlining,	but is capable
     of	a standout mode	then that is used instead.  If the terminal can
     overstrike, or handles underlining	automatically, ul degenerates to cat.
     If	the terminal cannot underline, underlining is ignored.

     The following options are available:

     -t	terminal Override the terminal kind specified in the environment.  If
		 the terminal cannot underline,	underlining is ignored.

     -i		 Indicate underlining by a separate line containing
		 appropriate dashes -; this is useful when you want to look at
		 the underlining which is present in an	nroff output stream on
		 a CRT-terminal.

     -b		 Use bold if a combination of attributes is present (for
		 example, underlining plus bold).  The default in this
		 situation is to use reverse video.  The manual	pages look
		 better	with this option, so man(1) uses it by default.
