+.SH NAME
+\fB@CAPTOINFO@\fR - convert a \fItermcap\fR description into a \fIterminfo\fR description
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+\fB@CAPTOINFO@\fR [\fB-v\fR\fIn\fR \fIwidth\fR] [\fB-V\fR] [\fB-1\fR] [\fB-w\fR \fIwidth\fR] \fIfile\fR . . .
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+\fB@CAPTOINFO@\fR looks in \fIfile\fR for \fBtermcap\fR descriptions. For each
+one found, an equivalent \fBterminfo\fR description is written to standard
+output. Termcap \fBtc\fR capabilities are translated directly to terminfo
+\fBuse\fR capabilities.
+.PP
+If no \fIfile\fR is given, then the environment variable \fBTERMCAP\fR is used
+for the filename or entry. If \fBTERMCAP\fR is a full pathname to a file, only
+the terminal whose name is specified in the environment variable \fBTERM\fR is
+extracted from that file. If the environment variable \fBTERMCAP\fR is not
+set, then the file \fB\*d\fR is read.
+.TP 5
+\fB-v\fR
+print out tracing information on standard error as the program runs.
+.TP 5
+\fB-V\fR
+print out the version of the program in use on standard error and exit.
+.TP 5
+\fB-1\fR
+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.
+.TP 5
+\fB-w\fR
+change the output to \fIwidth\fR characters.
+.SH FILES
+.TP 20
+\*d
+Compiled terminal description database.
+.SH TRANSLATIONS FROM NONSTANDARD CAPABILITIES
+.PP
+Some obsolete nonstandard capabilities will automatically be translated
+into standard (SVr4/XSI Curses) terminfo capabilities by \fB@CAPTOINFO@\fR.
+Whenever one of these automatic translations is done, the program
+will issue an notification to stderr, inviting the user to check that
+it has not mistakenly translated a completely unknown and random
+capability and/or syntax error.

+XENIX termcap also used to have a set of extension capabilities
+for forms drawing, designed to take advantage of the IBM PC
+high-half graphics. They were as follows:

+If the single-line capabilities occur in an entry, they will automatically
+be composed into an \fIacsc\fR string. The double-line capabilities and
+\fBGG\fR are discarded with a warning message.
+.PP
+IBM's AIX has a terminfo facility descended from SVr1 terminfo but incompatible
+with the SVr4 format. The following AIX extensions are automatically
+translated:

+c c
+l l.

+ksel kslt
+kbtab kcbt
+font0 s0ds
+font1 s1ds
+font2 s2ds
+font3 s3ds
+.TE
+.PP
+Additionally, the AIX \fIbox1\fR capability will be automatically translated to
+an \fIacsc\fR string.
+.PP
+Hewlett-Packard's terminfo library supports two nonstandard terminfo
+capabilities \fImeml\fR (memory lock) and \fImemu\fR (memory unlock).
+These will be discarded with a warning message.
+.SH NOTES
+This utility is actually a link to \fB@TIC@\fR(1M), running in \fI-I\fR mode.
+You can use other \fB@TIC@\fR options such as \fB-f\fR and \fB-x\fR.
+.PP
+The trace option is not identical to SVr4's. Under SVr4, instead of following
+the \fB-v\fR with a trace level n, you repeat it n times.
