infotocap – convert a terminfo description into a termcap description
infotocap [-vn width] [-V] [-1] [-w width] file . . .
infotocap looks in each given text file for terminfo descriptions. For
each terminfo description found, an equivalent termcap description is
written to standard output. Terminfo use capabilities are translated
directly to termcap tc capabilities.
-v print out tracing information on standard error as the program
-V print out the version of the program in use on standard error and
-1 cause the fields to print out one to a line. Otherwise, the
fields will be printed several to a line to a maximum width of 60
-w change the output to width characters.
/etc/terminfo Compiled terminal description database.
This utility is actually a link to tic, running in -C mode. You can
use other tic options such as -f and -x.
