captoinfo [-1] [-v...] [-V] [-w width] filename...
captoinfo looks in filename for termcap descriptions. For each one found, an equivalent terminfo description is written to standard output, along with any comments found. A description which is expressed as relative to another description (as specified in the termcap tc = field) is reduced to the minimum superset before being displayed.
If no filename is given, then the environment variable TERMCAP is used for the filename or entry. If TERMCAP is a full pathname to a file, only the terminal whose name is specified in the environment variable TERM is extracted from that file. If the environment variable TERMCAP is not set, then the file /usr/share/lib/termcap is read.
-1 Display the fields one to a line. Otherwise, the fields are printed several to a line, with a maximum width of 60 characters.
-v Display tracing information on the standard error as the program runs. Specifying additional -v options displays more detailed information.
-V Display the version of the program in use on the standard error and then exit.
-w width Change the output to width characters.

captoinfo should be used to convert termcap entries to terminfo entries because the termcap database may not be supplied in future releases.
