INFOCMP(1)              NetBSD General Commands Manual              INFOCMP(1)

infocmp -- compare or print compiled terminfo descriptions
infocmp [-1acnqux] [-A database] [-B database] [-w cols] [term ...]
The infocmp reconstructs the first available terminfo(5) definition found for term and prints the result in a terminfo(5) format. Capability types are grouped together and new types start new lines, first flags, then numbers, then strings. Capabilities are sorted by their name. If a sec- ond term is given then the capabilities are compared against each other. The following options are available: -1 Print one capability per line. -A database Use this database to load the first terminal definition. -B database Use this database to load subsequent terminal defini- tions. -a Include commented out capabilities. This only works if the database was compiled with the -a flag passed to tic(1). This also sets the -x flag as infocmp retains commented out capabilities as non standard. -c Print capabilities common to each definition. -n Print capabilities that do not exist in either defini- tion. -q Make the comparison listing shorter by omitting subhead- ings and using - for absent capabilities, @ for canceled capabilities rather than NULL. -u Build a new terminal description for the first terminal description, using subsequent terminal descriptions. This also sets the -a flag. -w cols Limit the width to cols. -x Include non-standard capabilities. More -x only handles non-standard capabilities. This only works if the data- base was compiled with the -x flag passed to tic(1).
COLUMNS Override columns returned by the output terminal. -w cols supersedes this. TERM infocmp uses the contents of the TERM environment vari- able if no terminal name is given on the command line.
The infocmp utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
tic(1), terminfo(5)
The infocmp utility outputs information that conforms to the X/Open Curses Issue 4, Version 2 (``XCURSES4.2'') standard.
