NAME

ul - Translates underlining for display on a terminal  

SYNOPSIS

ul [-i] [-t terminal] [file...]

The ul command displays the named files (or standard input if none are given) with underlining shown as it would be on the printed page.
 

OPTIONS

Causes the ul command to indicate underlining by a separate line containing appropriate - (dashes). This is useful when you want to look at the underlining in formatted text output on a cathode ray tube (CRT) terminal. Overrides the terminal kind specified in the environment. The terminfo database is read to determine the appropriate sequences for underlining. If the terminal is incapable of underlining but is capable of a standout mode, then that mode is used instead. If the terminal can overstrike, or handles underlining automatically, ul acts like the cat command, simply displaying data to the screen. If the terminal cannot underline, underlining is ignored.
 

DESCRIPTION

The ul command translates underscores to the sequence that indicates display underlining for the terminal in use, as specified by the TERM environment variable.
