If \fIcapname\fR is of type boolean, a value of \fB0\fR is set for
TRUE and \fB1\fR for FALSE unless the \fB-S\fR option is used.
If \fIcapname\fR is of type string, a value of \fB0\fR is set if the
\fIcapname\fR is defined for this terminal \fItype\fR (the value of
\fIcapname\fR is returned on standard output); a value of \fB1\fR is
set if \fIcapname\fR is not defined for this terminal \fItype\fR (a
null value is returned on standard output).
If \fIcapname\fR is of type boolean or string and the \fB-S\fR option
is used, a value of \fB0\fR is returned to indicate that all lines
were successful. No indication of which line failed can be given so
exit code \fB1\fR will never appear. Exit codes \fB2\fR, \fB3\fR, and
\fB4\fR retain their usual interpretation.
If \fIcapname\fR is of type integer, a value of \fB0\fR is always set,
whether or not \fIcapname\fR is defined for this terminal \fItype\fR.
To determine if \fIcapname\fR is defined for this terminal \fItype\fR,
the user must test the value of standard output. A value of \fB-1\fR
means that \fIcapname\fR is not defined for this terminal \fItype\fR.
Any other exit code indicates an error; see the DIAGNOSTICS section.
\fBtput\fR prints the following error messages and sets the corresponding exit
l l.
