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-
-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-
-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.
The infocmp utility outputs information that conforms to the X/Open
Curses Issue 4, Version 2 (``XCURSES4.2'') standard.
