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.
