untic — terminfo de-compiler


untic [term] [-f file]


untic translates a terminfo file from the compiled format into the source format. If the environment variable TERMINFO is set to a path name, untic checks for a compiled terminfo description of the terminal under the path specified by TERMINFO before checking /usr/share/lib/terminfo. Otherwise, only /usr/share/lib/terminfo is checked.

Normally untic uses the terminal type obtained from the TERM environment variable. With the term (terminal type) argument, however, the user can specify the terminal type used.

With the file argument the user can specify the file used for translation. This option bypasses the use of the TERM and TERMINFO environment variables.

untic sends the de-compiled terminfo description result to standard output.


untic was developed by HP.
