       <STRONG>toe</STRONG> - table of (terminfo) entries

       <STRONG>toe</STRONG> [<STRONG>-v</STRONG>[<EM>n</EM>]] [<STRONG>-ahsuUV</STRONG>] <EM>file...</EM>


</PRE><H2><a name="h2-DESCRIPTION">DESCRIPTION</a></H2><PRE>
       With no options, <STRONG>toe</STRONG> lists all available terminal types by primary name
       with descriptions.   File  arguments  specify  the  directories  to  be
       scanned;  if  no such arguments are given, your default terminfo direc-
       tory is scanned.  If you also specify the <STRONG>-h</STRONG> option, a directory header
       will be issued as each directory is entered.

       There are other options intended for use by terminfo file maintainers:

       <STRONG>-a</STRONG>     report  on  all  of  the  terminal databases which ncurses would
              search, rather than only the first one that it finds.

              If the <STRONG>-s</STRONG> is also given, <STRONG>toe</STRONG> adds a column to the report,  show-
              ing  (like  <STRONG>conflict(1)</STRONG>)  which  entries which belong to a given
              terminal database.  An "*" marks entries which differ,  and  "+"
              marks equivalent entries.

              Without  the <STRONG>-s</STRONG> option, <STRONG>toe</STRONG> does not attempt to merge duplicates
              in its report

       <STRONG>-s</STRONG>     sort the output by the entry names.

       <STRONG>-u</STRONG> <EM>file</EM>
              says to write a report to the standard output, listing dependen-
              cies in the given terminfo/termcap source file.  The report con-
              denses the "use" relation: each line  consists  of  the  primary
              name  of  a  terminal  that  has use capabilities, followed by a
              colon, followed by the whitespace-separated primary names of all
              terminals  which  occur in those use capabilities, followed by a
              newline

       <STRONG>-U</STRONG> <EM>file</EM>
              says to write a report to the standard output,  listing  reverse
              dependencies  in  the  given  terminfo/termcap source file.  The
              report reverses the "use" relation: each line  consists  of  the
              primary name of a terminal that occurs in use capabilities, fol-
              lowed by a colon, followed by the  whitespace-separated  primary
              names  of  all  terminals which depend on it, followed by a new-
              line.

       <STRONG>-v</STRONG><EM>n</EM>    specifies that (verbose) output be written  to  standard  error,
              showing <STRONG>toe</STRONG>'s progress.

              The  optional  parameter <EM>n</EM> is a number from 1 to 10, interpreted
              as for <STRONG><A HREF="tic.1m.html">tic(1m)</A></STRONG>.  If ncurses is built  without  tracing  support,
              the optional parameter is ignored.

       <STRONG>-V</STRONG>     reports  the  version of ncurses which was used in this program,
              and exits.

       Without sorting, the <STRONG>-a</STRONG> option reports all of the names found in all of
       the terminal databases found by the <STRONG>TERMINFO</STRONG> and <STRONG>TERMINFO_DIRS</STRONG> environ-
       ment variables:

           qvt119+-25     QVT 119 PLUS with 25 data lines

       Use the <STRONG>-a</STRONG> and <STRONG>-s</STRONG> options together to show where each terminal descrip-
       tion was found:

       This  utility  is  not  provided by other implementations.  There is no
       relevant X/Open or POSIX standard for <STRONG>toe</STRONG>.

       The program name refers to a developer's pun:

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   <STRONG>tic</STRONG>,

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   <STRONG>tac</STRONG> (now <STRONG>tack</STRONG>),

       <STRONG>o</STRONG>   <STRONG>toe</STRONG>.

       It replaced a <STRONG>-T</STRONG> option which was  briefly  supported  by  the  ncurses
       <STRONG>infocmp</STRONG> utility in 1995.

       The  <STRONG>-a</STRONG>  and <STRONG>-s</STRONG> options were added to <STRONG>toe</STRONG> several years later (2006 and
       2011, respectively).
