NAME
       infotocap - convert a terminfo description into a termcap description

SYNOPSIS
       infotocap [-vn width]  [-V] [-1] [-w width] file . . .

DESCRIPTION
       infotocap  looks  in  each  given  text file for terminfo descriptions.	For each terminfo
       description found, an equivalent termcap description is written to standard output.   Ter-
       minfo use capabilities are translated directly to termcap tc capabilities.

       -v   print out tracing information on standard error as the program runs.

       -V   print out the version of the program in use on standard error and exit.

       -1   cause  the	fields to print out one to a line.  Otherwise, the fields will be printed
	    several to a line to a maximum width of 60 characters.

       -w   change the output to width characters.

FILES
       /usr/share/terminfo Compiled terminal description database.

NOTES
       This utility is actually a link to tic, running in -C mode.  You can use other tic options
       such as -f and  -x.
