NAME
       infotocap - convert a terminfo description into a termcap description

SYNOPSIS
       infotocap [-vn width]  [-V] [-1]	[-w width] file	. . .

DESCRIPTION
       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
	    runs.

       -V   print  out the version of the program in use on standard error and
	    exit.

       -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
	    characters.

       -w   change the output to width characters.

FILES
       /usr/local/share/misc/terminfo
			   Compiled terminal description database.

NOTES
       This utility is actually	a link to tic, running in -C  mode.   You  can
       use other tic options such as -f	and  -x.
