local termcap file?

Post by R. Christopher Lo » Wed, 01 Jan 1997 04:00:00



I want a way to provide termcap entries at the user level. I have tried
setting a environment variable TERMCAP to both the filename and the
actual termcap entry itself. Neither approach seems to work. Is there
any standard way to do this?

I have terminfo working in this manner already - unfortunately, several
of the utilities (vi, elm,...) still utilize termcap.

Help.
