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 directory 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, showing (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 dependencies in the given terminfo/termcap source file. The report condenses 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 report reverses the ’use’ relation: each line consists of the primary name of a terminal that occurs in use capabilities, followed by a colon, followed by the whitespace-separated primary names of all terminals which depend on it, followed by a newline.

−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(1).

−V

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

FILES

/etc/terminfo/?/*

Compiled terminal description database.
