The termcap data base of terminal descriptions is stored in the file `/etc/termcap'. It contains terminal descriptions, blank lines, and comments.
A terminal description starts with one or more names for the terminal type. The information in the description is a series of capability names and values. The capability names have standard meanings (see section Definitions of the Terminal Capabilities) and their values describe the terminal.
