Description Cyrille Lefevre 2002-05-17 08:00:12 UTC
	this patch-set install ncurses version of the following
	commands as well as the terminfo database :

		nclear ninfocmp ntic ntoe ntput ntset
		ncaptoinfo ninfotocap nreset

	they are installed w/ a "n" prefix to avoid conflict w/
	the BSD one (clean, reset, tput, tset).

	src/etc/defaults/make.conf
		NO_CURSES, NO_TERMINFO and NO_TERMTYPES descrition added.

	src/etc/mtree/BSD.usr.dist
		terminfo directories added.

	src/usr.bin/Makefile
	src/share/Makefile
		SUBDIR conditionally enhanced regarding NO_CURSES and/or
		NO_TERMINFO.

	src/usr.bin/nclear/Makefile
	src/usr.bin/ninfocmp/Makefile
	src/usr.bin/ntic/Makefile
	src/usr.bin/ntoe/Makefile
	src/usr.bin/ntput/Makefile
	src/usr.bin/ntset/Makefile
		new files

	src/usr.bin/ntic/Makefile.nc
		new file included by ncurses related Makefiles.

	src/share/terminfo/Makefile
		new file
		conditionnaly compile the old or the new terminfo
		database according to NO_TERMTYPES.

	src/share/terminfo/termtypes.ti
		new file
		not provided since it is too big for a PR (800+ KB).
		a newer one may be found at the following URL :

			http://tuxedo.org/~esr/terminfo/termtypes.ti.gz

	PS : since the src/contrib/ncurses/misc/terminfo.src terminfo
	database is out-of-date, it isn't used by default.

	also, see PR#30812 about the termcap database update.

Fix: take care, this patch is in two part. the first one
	has been obtain using cvs diff, and the second one
	using diff /dev/null ...
How-To-Repeat: 	n/a

oops, you are right and I'm totally wrong... my apologies ;^)

I've considered that the ncurses databases where obsolete because
FreeBSD uses it's own termcap database instead of the ncurses one,
while, in fact, it appear that ncurses databases are up-to-date.

so, src/contrib/ncurses/misc/terminfo.src may be updated using
this one :
> ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/terminfo.src.gz
850+ KB

and src/contrib/ncurses/misc/termcap.src may be imported from :
> ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/termcap.src.gz
750+ KB

humm! the first comment says :

# This version of terminfo.src is distributed with ncurses.
                  ^^^^^^^^^^^^ should be termcap.src

see attached patches which updated existing ones.

Cyrille.

the termcap.src file is generated from the terminfo.src file (which
actually contains some information which is used only for termcap).

However, esr's source is several years out of date (also the URL).
As I make changes to ncurses, I update these files:

	ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/terminfo.src.gz
	ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/termcap.src.gz

The latter is generated of course.
