+The files in this directory (tinfo) are those that support the terminfo
+database and interfaces for ncurses. The terminfo library can be built
+separately, as a lower-level library for ncurses, but usually is bundled.
+In addition to the standard documented interfaces, ncurses uses internal
+functions which reside in tinfo to satisfy linkage requirements.
