NAME
       captoinfo - convert a termcap description into a	terminfo description

SYNOPSIS
       captoinfo [-1] [-v...] [-V] [-w width] filename...

DESCRIPTION
       captoinfo  looks	 in  filename  for  termcap descriptions. For each one
       found, an equivalent  terminfo description is written to	standard  out-
       put, along with any comments found. A description which is expressed as
       relative	to another description (as  specified  in  the	termcap	 tc  =
       field) is reduced to the	minimum	superset before	being displayed.

       If no  filename is given, then 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.

OPTIONS
       -1    Display  the  fields  one	to  a  line. Otherwise,	the fields are
	     printed several to	a line,	with a maximum width of	60 characters.

       -v    Display tracing information on the	standard error as the  program
	     runs. Specifying additional -v options displays more detailed in-
	     formation.

       -V    Display the version of the	program	in use on the  standard	 error
	     and then exit.

       -w width
	     Change the	output to width	characters.

FILES
       /usr/share/lib/terminfo/?/*
	     compiled terminal description database
