Something needs to be done with tn3270 (c3270 or whatever)
$TERMCAP will not work
tset -s just prints $TERM
I wrote the terminfo code, but the terminfo database is from ncurses.
In order not to lose functions like $TERMCAP and tn3270,
please implement terminfo as an emulation on top of native termcap.
You have already written most of needed code for termcap<-> terminfo
conversion, so the implementation will not be so difficult.
tic command would be something like infotocap&& cap_mkdb.
tn3270 works quite happily on my terminfo implementation via the termcap
emulation and is available via pkgsrc. It has not been lost.
It's ONLY $TERMCAP that has been lost.
The only valid reason for keeping $TERMCAP I've heard so far is for when
$HOME is ro and the local terminfo database does not have a working
definition for your terminal.
The only thing I'm willing to do at this point is consider making
$TERMINFO be respected as a terminfo description.
