TERM(7) BSD Reference Manual TERM(7)
term - conventional names for terminals
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.
stty(1), tabs(1), plot(1) sh(1), environ(7) ex(1), clear(1), more(1), ul(1), tset(1), termcap(5), termcap(3), ttys(5) troff(1)
The programs that ought to adhere to this nomenclature do so only fitful- ly.
