TIC(1) General Commands Manual TIC(1) NAME tic - terminfo compiler SYNOPSIS tic [-acSsx] [-o file] source [term1 term2 ...] DESCRIPTION The tic utility compiles terminfo(5) source into a database for use by other programs. The created database path name is the same as the source but with .cdb appended. The following options are available: -a Do not discard commented out capabilities. -c Only check for errors, don't write the final database. -o file Write the database to file instead of source.cdb. -S For term1, term2, ... output a C structure containing name, compiled description, and compiled size. This can be used to embed terminal descriptions into a program. -s Display the number of terminal descriptions written to the database. -x Include non standard capabilities defined in the source. Extensions To Terminfo When tic discovers a use=term capability, the terminal description for term is merged in. Capabilities do not overwrite previously discovered ones and capabilities ending with @ are marked as absent so the terminal does not inherit the capability from used terminals. EXIT STATUS The tic utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs. EXAMPLES To maintain your private terminfo definitions, if the system supplied ones do not support your terminal: tic ~/.terminfo SEE ALSO infocmp(1), tput(1), curses(3), terminfo(5) STANDARDS The tic utility works with terminfo files that conform to the X/Open Curses Issue 4, Version 2 ("XCURSES4.2") standard.
