Compiled terminal description database.
+.SH HISTORY
+This utility is not provided by other implementations.
+There is no relevant X/Open or POSIX standard for \fB@TOE@\fP.
+.PP
+The program name refers to a developer's pun:
+.bP
+\fBtic\fP,
+.bP
+\fBtac\fP (now \fBtack\fP),
+.bP
+\fBtoe\fP.
+.PP
+It replaced a \fB\-T\fP option which was briefly supported by
+the ncurses \fBinfocmp\fP utility in 1995.
+.PP
+The \fB\-a\fP and \fB\-s\fP options were added to
+\fB@TOE@\fR several years later (2006 and 2011, respectively).
