NAME

       toe - table of (terminfo) entries

SYNOPSIS

       toe [-v[n]] [-ahsuUV] file...

DESCRIPTION

       With no options, toe 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  directory  is  scanned.  If you also specify the -h option, a directory
       header will be issued as each directory is entered.

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

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

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

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

       -s     sort the output by the entry names.

       -u file
              says  to  write  a report to the standard output, listing dependencies in the given
              terminfo/termcap source file.  The report condenses 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

       -U file
              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,
              followed by a colon, followed by the  whitespace-separated  primary  names  of  all
              terminals which depend on it, followed by a newline.

       -vn    specifies  that  (verbose)  output  be  written  to  standard  error, showing toe's
              progress.

              The optional parameter n is a number from 1 to 10, interpreted as for  tic(1).   If
              ncurses is built without tracing support, the optional parameter is ignored.

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

EXAMPLES

       Without  sorting,  the  -a  option  reports  all of the names found in all of the terminal
       databases found by the TERMINFO and TERMINFO_DIRS environment variables:

           MtxOrb162      16x2 Matrix Orbital LCD display
           MtxOrb204      20x4 Matrix Orbital LCD display
           MtxOrb         Generic Matrix Orbital LCD display
           qvt101+        qume qvt 101 PLUS product
           qvt119+-25     QVT 119 PLUS with 25 data lines
           qansi-g        QNX ANSI
           qvt103         qume qvt 103
           qnxw           QNX4 windows
           qansi-w        QNX ansi for windows
           qnxm           QNX4 with mouse events
           qvt203-25-w    QVT 203 PLUS with 25 by 132 columns
           qansi-t        QNX ansi without console writes
           . . .

       Use the -a and -s options together to show where each terminal description was found:

           --> /usr/local/ncurses/share/terminfo
           ----> /usr/share/terminfo
           *-+-:     9term          Plan9 terminal emulator for X
           *---:     Eterm          Eterm with xterm-style color support (X Window System)
           *-*-:     Eterm-256color Eterm with xterm 256-colors
           *-*-:     Eterm-88color  Eterm with 88 colors
           *-+-:     MtxOrb         Generic Matrix Orbital LCD display
           *-+-:     MtxOrb162      16x2 Matrix Orbital LCD display
           *-+-:     MtxOrb204      20x4 Matrix Orbital LCD display
           *-*-:     NCR260VT300WPP NCR 2900_260 vt300 wide mode pc+  kybd
           *-+-:     aaa            ann arbor ambassador/30 lines
           *-+-:     aaa+dec        ann arbor ambassador in dec vt100 mode
           *-+-:     aaa+rv         ann arbor ambassador in reverse video
           . . .

HISTORY

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

       The program name refers to a developer's pun:

       ·   tic,

       ·   tac (now tack),

       ·   toe.

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

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