TERM(7)                      BSD Reference Manual                      TERM(7)

NAME

     term - conventional names for terminals

DESCRIPTION

     Certain commands use these terminal names. They are maintained as part of
     the shell environment (see sh(1), environ(7)).

     The list goes on and on. Consult /usr/share/misc/termcap (see termcap(5))
     for an up-to-date and locally correct list.

     Commands whose behavior may depend on the terminal either consult TERM in
     the environment, or accept arguments of the form -Tterm, where term is
     one of the names given above.

BUGS

     The programs that ought to adhere to this nomenclature do so only fitful-
     ly.
