toe - table of (terminfo) entries
toe [-v[n]] [-ahuUV] file...
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:
report on all of the terminal databases which ncurses would search,
rather than only the first one that it finds.
- -u file
says to issue a report on dependencies in the given file. This 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 issue a report on reverse dependencies in the given file. This 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.
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).
reports the version of ncurses which was used in this program, and exits.
Compiled terminal description database.
