terminfo - terminal capability data base
''Terminfo'' is a data base describing terminals, used by
screen-oriented programs such as nvi(1),
and libraries such as __curses__(3X).
+ and libraries such as __curses__(3X).
''Terminfo'' describes terminals by giving a set of
capabilities which they have, by specifying how to perform
screen operations, and by specifying padding requirements
and initialization sequences.

We begin each escape sequence by turning off any existing modes, since there is no quick way to determine whether they are active. Standout is set up to be the combination of reverse and bold. The vt220 terminal has a protect mode, though it is not commonly used in sgr because it protects characters on the screen from the host's erasures. The altcharset mode also is different in that it is either ^O or ^N, depending on whether it is off or on. If all modes are turned on, the resulting sequence is E[[0;1;4;5;7;8m^N.
