NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ul - Translates underlining for display on a terminal

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

       The ul command displays the named files (or standard input
       if none are given) with underlining shown as it  would  be
       on the printed page.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Causes  the  ul command to indicate underlining by a separate
 line containing appropriate - (dashes).  This is useful
  when you want to look at the underlining in formatted
       text output on a cathode ray tube (CRT)  terminal.   Overrides
 the terminal kind specified in the environment.  The
       terminfo database is read  to  determine  the  appropriate
       sequences for underlining. If the terminal is incapable of
       underlining but is capable of a standout mode,  then  that
       mode  is  used instead. If the terminal can overstrike, or
       handles underlining automatically, ul acts  like  the  cat
       command,  simply  displaying  data  to the screen.  If the
       terminal cannot underline, underlining is ignored.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The ul command translates underscores to the sequence that
       indicates  display underlining for the terminal in use, as
       specified by the TERM environment variable.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Terminal information database.
