<operating system> (terminal capabilities) A Unix database listing
different types of terminal (or terminal emulation) and the character strings to
send to make the terminal perform certain functions such as move the cursor up
one line or clear the screen.
Programs written using termcap can work on any terminal in the database which
supports the necessary functions. Typical programs are text editors or file
viewers like more. The termcap routines look for an environment variable "TERM"
to determine which terminal the user is using.
terminfo is a later version of termcap.
