Re: HEADS UP: terminfo imported into -current

Hi List

I've now imported my terminfo implementation into -current and removed termcap. terminfo provides a backwards compatable termcap interface (minus the NetBSD extensions).

Everything should still work just as before, with the below exceptions:

* Any 3rd party programs using the termcap API NetBSD extensions
 will have to be reworked.

* termcap -> terminfo translation is not provided.
 As such $TERMCAP is ignored and tset -s no longer reports it.
 If you maintain your own definitions you will now have to manage
 them your personal terminfo databases.
 This is described in tic(1).

So I deleted my termcap.db and rebuilt all my packages because I
was getting termcap errors from xterm. Is that about what I need to do
to test for this change?
