Multi-File Collections

A collection of termcap entries submitted by Informix users and/or taken from public postings on the Net. In most cases, these entries work correctly in the specific environment for which they were developed. However, they have been accumulated here without testing or editing, so of course "your mileage may vary."

The entries are divided into files based loosely on the actual and/or emulated equipment which they support. This categorization is somewhat arbitrary, and is designed mainly to help decide if a new entry is already in the archive. There is some overlap of entries; e. g., entries for Wyse terminals emulating DEC VT100's appear in the files for both "Wyse" and "VTxxx" groups. [MISC]
