= Tgetent Term::Cap





Acts as the constructor for Term::Cap. Extracts the termcap entry for terminal type termtype and returns a reference to a terminal object. The termcap entry itself is $terminal->{TERMCAP} . Calls Carp::croak on failure. Takes the following arguments:

TERM => termtype

Terminal type. Defaults to the value of the environment variable TERM if termtype is false or undefined.

OSPEED => ospeed

The terminal output bit rate, specified as either a POSIX termios/SYSV termio speed or an old BSD-style speed. You can use the POSIX module to get your terminal's output speed (in ospeed here).
