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 out-
       put.  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 stan-
            dard error and exit.

       -1   cause the fields to print out one to a line.   Other-
            wise, the fields will be printed several to a line to
            a maximum width of 60 characters.

       -w   change the output to width characters.

       mode.  You can use other tic options such as -f and  -x.
