TERMINFO(5)               NetBSD File Formats Manual               TERMINFO(5)

NAME
     terminfo -- terminal capability definition

DESCRIPTION
     terminfo describes the capabilities of terminals, used by programs such
     as vi(1), rogue(6) and libraries such as curses(3).  The terminfo source
     described here needs to be compiled with tic(1) to be of any use.

     Entries in terminfo consist of a number of comma separated fields.  White
     space after each comma is ignored.  Embedded commas must be escaped by
     using a backslash.  Lines beginning with `#' in the first column are
     treated as comments.  Blank lines are ignored.

     The header line must begin in column one and end with a comma.  Inside
     the header line are terminal name and aliases, separated by vertical
     bars, the last one being the long description of the terminal.

     Capability lines then follow, starting on column two and ending with a
     comma.  Each capability is listed by its name, followed by its value if
     applicable.  Booleans have no values, numeric values are prefixed by `#'
     and strings are prefixed by `='.  Numbers can range from 0 to 32767 and
     string values can be up to 1000 characters long.  This implementation
     supports strings upto 32767 characters long, including the NUL termina-
     tor.

     Some escapes are available for strings - both \E and \e map to the ESC
     character, ^X maps to a control-X for any appropriate X, and the
     sequences \n, \r, \t, \b and \f map to linefeed, return, tab, backspace,
     and formfeed respectively.  Any character can be escaped in octal, such
     as \072.  If you need to encode a NUL character, it should be escaped as
     \200.

     A delay in milliseconds may appear anywhere in a string capability, pre-
     fixed with a dollar sign and enclosed by angled brackets, such as $<5>.

   String Parameters
     String capabilities sometimes require parameters.  Normally this just
     involves replacing the parameter with a supplied variable; however, there
     are cases where the variable needs to be manipulated or used in condi-
     tional expressions.  A stack is also provided for simple pop and push
     operations.

     The below % encodings have the following meanings:

     %%       outputs %

     %[[:]flags][width[.precision]][doxXs]
              flags are ``[-+#]''.  Prefix with `:' to avoid interpreting
              ``%-'' as an operator.

     %c       pop a parameter and print the character representation of it.

     %s       pop a parameter and print the string representation of it.

     %p[1-9]  push the parameter [1-9].

     %P[a-z]  pop a parameter and push it to dynamic variable [a-z].

     %g[a-z]  push the dynamic variable [a-z].

     %P[A-Z]  pop a parameter and push it to static variable [a-z].

     %g[A-Z]  push the dynamic variable [A-Z].

              Static variables persist over tparm() whereas dynamic variables
              do not.

     %'c'     char constant c.

     %{nn}    integer constant nn.

     %l       push the string length of the previously popped parameter.

     %+ %- %* %/ %m
              arithmetic: pop two parameters and push the result.

     %& %| %^
              bit operations: pop two parameters and push the result.

     %! %~    unary operations: pop two parameters and push the result.

     %i       add 1 to parameters 1 and 2.

     %? expr %t then %e else %;
              If expr equates to zero then control passes to the optional else
              part.

   Fetching Compiled Descriptions
     This implementation uses hashed databases managed by cdb(5) instead of
     directories.  To maintain compatability with other implementations, .cdb
     is appended to each file checked.

     If the environment variable TERMINFO is available, does not begin with
     (`/'), can be compiled with the above rules and whose name matches TERM
     then it is used.

     If the environment variable TERMCAP is available and does not begin with
     a slash (`/') then it will be translated into terminfo and compiled as
     above.  If its name matches TERM then it is used.

     If the environment variable TERMINFO is available and begins with a slash
     (`/') then only this file is searched.  Otherwise terminfo will first
     look for $HOME/.terminfo, followed by /usr/share/misc/terminfo unless
     TERMINFO_DIRS is available.  If a matching description is not found then
     a small embedded database is searched, which currently holds descriptions
     for ansi, dumb, vt100, vt220, wsvt25, and xterm.

FILES
     $HOME/.terminfo.cdb           Database of terminal descriptions for per-
                                   sonal use.
     /usr/share/misc/terminfo      File containing terminal descriptions.
     /usr/share/misc/terminfo.cdb  Database of terminal descriptions.

STANDARDS
     terminfo complies with the X/Open Curses Issue 4, Version 2
     (``XCURSES4.2'') standard.

     Extensions to the standard are noted in tic(1).
