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
       /etc/terminfo       Compiled terminal description database.

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