tset - Set terminal emulation


tset termcap


Tset installs a terminal capability file (termcap) into memory for use with programs that require special emulation functions, such as being able to move the cursor, clear the display, turn on inverse video, and so forth.

The argument is the name of a termcap file residing in the directory $/sys/termcaps. As shipped, this system has many popular terminals to choose from, though your system administrator can create customized terminals for you if needed.
