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 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.
/usr/share/terminfo Compiled terminal description data- base.
This utility is actually a link to tic, running in -C mode. You can use other tic options such as -f and -x.
