NAME
       toe - table of (terminfo) entries

SYNOPSIS
       toe [-v[n]] [-ahsuUV] file...

DESCRIPTION
       With no options,	toe lists all available	terminal types by primary name
       with descriptions.   File  arguments  specify  the  directories	to  be
       scanned;	 if  no	such arguments are given, your default terminfo	direc-
       tory is scanned.	 If you	also specify the -h option, a directory	header
       will be issued as each directory	is entered.

       There are other options intended	for use	by terminfo file maintainers:

       -a     report  on  all  of  the	terminal databases which ncurses would
	      search, rather than only the first one that it finds.

	      If the -s	is also	given, toe adds	a column to the	report,	 show-
	      ing  (like  conflict(1))	which  entries which belong to a given
	      terminal database.  An "*" marks entries which differ,  and  "+"
	      marks equivalent entries.

	      Without  the -s option, toe does not attempt to merge duplicates
	      in its report

       -s     sort the output by the entry names.

       -u file
	      says to write a report to	the standard output, listing dependen-
	      cies in the given	terminfo/termcap source	file.  The report con-
	      denses the "use" relation: each line  consists  of  the  primary
	      name  of	a  terminal  that  has use capabilities, followed by a
	      colon, followed by the whitespace-separated primary names	of all
	      terminals	 which	occur in those use capabilities, followed by a
	      newline

       -U file
	      says to write a report to	the standard output,  listing  reverse
	      dependencies in the given	terminfo/termcap source	file.  The re-
	      port reverses the	"use" relation:	each line consists of the pri-
	      mary  name  of  a	terminal that occurs in	use capabilities, fol-
	      lowed by a colon,	followed by the	 whitespace-separated  primary
	      names  of	 all  terminals	which depend on	it, followed by	a new-
	      line.

       -vn    specifies	that (verbose) output be written  to  standard	error,
	      showing toe's progress.

	      The  optional  parameter n is a number from 1 to 10, interpreted
	      as for tic(1M).  If ncurses is built  without  tracing  support,
	      the optional parameter is	ignored.

       -V     reports  the  version of ncurses which was used in this program,
	      and exits.

EXAMPLES
       Without sorting,	the -a option reports all of the names found in	all of
       the terminal databases found by the TERMINFO and	TERMINFO_DIRS environ-
       ment variables:

	   MtxOrb162	  16x2 Matrix Orbital LCD display
	   MtxOrb204	  20x4 Matrix Orbital LCD display
	   MtxOrb	  Generic Matrix Orbital LCD display
	   qvt101+	  qume qvt 101 PLUS product
	   qvt119+-25	  QVT 119 PLUS with 25 data lines
	   qansi-g	  QNX ANSI
	   qvt103	  qume qvt 103
	   qnxw		  QNX4 windows
	   qansi-w	  QNX ansi for windows
	   qnxm		  QNX4 with mouse events
	   qvt203-25-w	  QVT 203 PLUS with 25 by 132 columns
	   qansi-t	  QNX ansi without console writes
	   . . .

       Use the -a and -s options together to show where	each terminal descrip-
       tion was	found:

	   --> /usr/local/ncurses/share/terminfo
	   ----> /usr/share/terminfo
	   *-+-:     9term	    Plan9 terminal emulator for	X
	   *---:     Eterm	    Eterm with xterm-style color support (X Window System)
	   *-*-:     Eterm-256color Eterm with xterm 256-colors
	   *-*-:     Eterm-88color  Eterm with 88 colors
	   *-+-:     MtxOrb	    Generic Matrix Orbital LCD display
	   *-+-:     MtxOrb162	    16x2 Matrix	Orbital	LCD display
	   *-+-:     MtxOrb204	    20x4 Matrix	Orbital	LCD display
	   *-*-:     NCR260VT300WPP NCR	2900_260 vt300 wide mode pc+  kybd
	   *-+-:     aaa	    ann	arbor ambassador/30 lines
	   *-+-:     aaa+dec	    ann	arbor ambassador in dec	vt100 mode
	   *-+-:     aaa+rv	    ann	arbor ambassador in reverse video
	   . . .

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

HISTORY
       This  utility  is  not  provided	by other implementations.  There is no
       relevant	X/Open or POSIX	standard for toe.

       The program name	refers to a developer's	pun:

       o   tic,

       o   tac (now tack),

       o   toe.

       It replaced a -T	option which was briefly supported by the ncurses  in-
       focmp utility in	1995.

       The  -a	and -s options were added to toe several years later (2006 and
       2011, respectively).

SEE ALSO
       tic(1M),	infocmp(1M), captoinfo(1M),  infotocap(1M),  curses(3X),  ter-
       minfo(5).

       This describes ncurses version 6.2 (patch 20200822).
