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.  Terminfo 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.
