Description

toe(8)                      System Manager's Manual                     toe(8)



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
              report reverses the "use" relation: each line  consists  of  the
              primary 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(8).  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.
